(Newser) – Amy Winehouse will be arrested, sources tell the Sun, after assaulting two men during a booze- and drug-induced rampage last night in London. The 24-year-old singer allegedly headbutted a man who was trying to hail a cab for her, and earlier punched a man for refusing to give up his pool table. 

Winehouse was spotted smoking drugs on the street, walking into a lamppost, and kissing a man who wasn’t her husband. “She was off her face, throwing drinks around and turning over tables,” said a fellow bar-goer. “Amy screamed, ‘I am a legend, get these people out. I want to take drugs.’” Winehouse faces up to 6 months in jail and a $2,000 fine.
