Amy Winehouse was arrested in Norway for marijuana possession and held overnight, an Oslo police official said today (Oct. 19).

Winehouse, her husband Blake Fielder-Civil and a third person were released at around 7:00 a.m. today after paying $715 in fines, Prosecutor Lars Morten Lothe said.

The trio was arrested shortly after 6 p.m. at a hotel in Bergen in southwestern Norway, where Winehouse is on a European tour, after a tip to police. "They were found with seven grams (about 1/4-ounce) of marijuana," Lothe said. "She's paid the fine, so this thing is over for us now."

Winehouse was to perform in Oslo tonight, before heading to the Netherlands on Monday.
