Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah spent last night behind bars after she was arrested on suspicion of assault.

The 23-year-old singer was taken to Guildford police station following a brawl with a number of other women at Bar Med in Surrey. According to reports in this morning's Sun and Mirror, Berrabah was at the nightclub with her younger sister, Laila, when a fight broke out between the pair and several other women.

Reports vary as to who initiated the fight but the group had to be separated by bouncers, who then called police. Berrabah is reported to have been left clutching a clump of hair she had ripped out of another girl's head. Her alleged victim is an unnamed 18-year-old.

Police arrested the singer when they arrived at the scene and she was released on bail this morning at around 7am after giving a statement, whereupon she joined fellow Sugababes' Heidi Range and Keisha Buchanan on a flight to the US.

Berrabah joined the Sugababes in 2005, replacing long-term member Mutya Beuna. The trio went on to have a number five hit, Red Dress, in 2006, and it was announced last week that toy manufacturers Mattel will be launching a range of Sugababes dolls.

The singer's personal life made headlines in February when it was discovered that her ex-boyfriend Freddie Fuller - who is reported to have been at the bar during last night's fight - had been arrested over an alleged sexual assault.

One Lil Aussie a dit…

I laughed out aloud when I read about Amelle. Such a classy chick! I miss Mutya's vocals...infinately better than Amelle's. (Isn't her solo stuff and stuff with Groove Armada cool!!)
