The 25-year-old Grammy-award-winning singer was charged in connection with an incident last September, police said. The altercation involved Winehouse hitting a fan after agreeing to pose for a photograph at a London charity ball, British media reported.

Police questioned Winehouse earlier this month in connection with the incident.
