(Newser) – Hard-partying singer and recent Grammy nominee Amy Winehouse added posting bail to her storied list of accomplishments today and was back on the streets only hours after London police charged her with "perverting justice," Sky News reports. The 24-year-old was arrested "by appointment" and is to return to court in March, said a Scotland Yard spokeswoman.

The troubled chanteuse stands accused of tampering in the assault trial of her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who has been jailed since Nov. 8. He's charged with assaulting a pub owner, then offering him money to drop the case and leave the country. Winehouse recently canceled all concerts following several disjointed appearances.
