According to authorities, at the "End Of Summer Ball" in Berkeley Square last fall, Sherene Flash asked Amy for a photo, to which she claimed the singer agreed.

However, when Flash asked if her friend could be in the picture, Amy allegedly punched her in the eye and ran off, crying, "Life can’t go on. I can’t do this any more."

According to CNN, a spokesman for the troubled singer released the following statement:

"Voluntarily attended a police station in London yesterday morning. She was questioned by appointment in relation to an accusation made after the Berkeley Ball last year. She was charged with common assault and will attend a court hearing in the coming weeks."
