( CM ) - Amy Winehouse is being investigated for reportedly assaulting a man after a night out in London earlier this week.
The troubled singer has been accused by a 38-year-old man of attacking him in the early hours of yesterday morning.
According to reports Winehouse, 24, attacked the man after he tried to help her into a taxi.
The tabloid press claimed on Thursday that the alleged victim is one of three people assaulted by Winehouse during a night out in Camden with Babyshambles guitarist Mik Whitnall.
A Metropolitan police spokeswoman said officers were investigating an alleged assault on Chalk Farm Road at 03:20 BST yesterday.
"A 38-year-old man attended Kentish Town police station yesterday where he claimed a 24-year-old woman assaulted him," she said.
Winehouse could face six months in jail if charged and subsequently convicted.
Earlier this week the Back to Black singer received three nominations for the prestigious Ivor Novello song-writing awards.
2008 has already seen the singer walk away with five Grammys despite constant allegations of drug-taking and her husband Blake Fielder-Civil being imprisoned on remand on a charge of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.
