(FROM AP) — In the latest bit of turbulence to rock singer Amy Winehouse’s private life, the Grammy winner was arrested on suspicion of drug possession in London on Wednesday. Police there have a video that allegedly shows the 24-year-old doing drugs during a party at her home in January — images from which are said to have been published in a British tabloid earlier this year. Winehouse was released after several hours of questioning on something called ”police bail,” which means that she’s not charged with an offense but can be recalled for more interviews. In a statement, her spokesman, Chris Goodman, said, ”Amy Winehouse voluntarily attended a London police station today by appointment. She was arrested in order to be interviewed and is cooperating fully with inquiries.”

Winehouse won multiple Grammy awards in February for her breakout hit, ”Rehab”; meanwhile, her personal life has been marked by turmoil. In April, she received a caution in connection with an assault that she allegedly committed outside a London pub. Earlier this week, it was reported that she stopped work on recording the theme song to the new James Bond movie — her producer, Mark Ronson, was quoted as saying that Winehouse is, ”not ready to record any music.” (AP via Yahoo!)
