Amy Winehouse

After being arrested Thursday (April 24) for allegedly head butting a man in London, Brit songstress Amy Winehouse has been released free of charges.

According to Billboard, the singer received a formal police caution, which will remain in her record and could be used against her if she's ever charged with a similar offense in the future.

As SOHH previously reported, the troubled diva was hauled in last week after allegedly scuffling with two men, one of which claimed she head butted him after he tried to hail her a cab.

Another man told tabloid papers that Winehouse hit him when he got in her way while she was playing pool at a bar in the Camden neighborhood of London. He also corroborated the alleged head butting victim's account.

A statement released by Winehouse spokesman Chris Goodman said the singer "admitted to a common assault by slapping a man with an open hand and accepted a caution." It continued that "Amy was fully cooperative with inquiries and apologized for the incident."

This follows a long list of run-ins with the law, in which Winehouse has barely escaped. Last month, she was cleared of charges for perverting the course of justice in her husband's, Blake Fielder-Civil's, assault case. And last October, the 24 year-old was jailed overnight in Norway for possession of marijuana.

But despite her trouble with the law and well publicized battle with substance abuse, Amy's still got money in the bank and the media frenzy hasn't negatively impacted her music sales.

The singer is ranked No. 10 on the London Sunday Times' list of the 100 richest people in music under 30. According to New York's Daily News, Winehouse rings up at $20 million while Brit singers Leona Lewis and Corinne Bailey Rae are each reportedly worth $12 million.
