Greasing the wheels of justice

The Times:

Amy Winehouse was arrested yesterday by police investigating an alleged bribery plot for which her husband is already in custody.

The singer is believed to have been questioned about an alleged attempt by Blake Fielder-Civil to halt a trial by offering a barman £200,000 to drop grievous bodily harm charges against him.

I don’t get it. There must be something subtle that I’ve missed.
What’s Amy done wrong? Surely, this is just ‘settling out of court’?


She was arrested but that is common practice for someone being interviewed by police.

Is it? I’ve only been arrested when I’ve ‘been helping the police with they’re enquiries’, never when I’ve just been helping police with they’re enquiries.
Didn’t a politician use that line recently?
