Amy was secretly filmed smoking crack at her East London home on January 18. Britain's The Sun claimed to have obtained the pictures of her smoking crack and snorting other narcotic substances at around 5 A.M. that day.

A copy of the video footage reportedly was handed over at the request of the Metropolitan Police and had already been passed to Tower Hamlets detectives to be investigated. It was the incident that later on prompted Amy to seek help, checking herself into an undisclosed drug-rehabilitation facility.

She was arrested in order to be interviewed and is cooperating fully with inquiries. The interview relates to a video handed to police earlier this year."

Amy's release on police bail, as stated by the AP, "means she has not been charged with an offense, but that officers can recall her for more questioning at any time."
