Love Charged with Assault

Warrant issued for troubled singer

By |
Courtney Love was hit with felony assault with a deadly weapon charges yesterday.

The singer allegedly attacked a woman with a bottle and a flashlight at the Los Angeles residence of former boyfriend Jim Barber on April 25th. The home was the same place where Love was arrested last October. She is expected to turn herself in to authorities today.

Love's October arrest resulted in misdemeanor charges for being under the influence of a controlled substance, to which she pleaded guilty and received drug counseling as a sentence. She pleaded not guilty to two felony drug possession charges. That case continues next month.

Love's troubles don't end there. In March she was charged with assault and reckless endangerment after allegedly striking a man in the head with a microphone stand during a club show in New York City.
