Love surrenders to police in LA

Love is facing several legal cases
Singer Courtney Love surrendered to police on her return to Los Angeles on Friday, two weeks after being the subject of an arrest warrant.

She had missed an arraignment on 9 July over assault charges, and will now face the court date on 20 August.

The widow of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain turned herself in at a Los Angeles police station and was freed on bail of $150,000 (81,800).

"She was very cooperative throughout the entire process," police said.

Case one: Being under the influence of drugs
- Los Angeles, October 2003
(Sentencing was due on 16 July)
Case two: Illegal possession of prescription drugs
- Los Angeles, October 2003
(Case still ongoing)
Case three: Assault and reckless endangerment
- New York, March 2004
(Resumes in September)
Case four: Assault with a deadly weapon
- Los Angeles, April 2004
(California arrest warrant served on Ms Love on 9 July)
Ms Love also faces a civil lawsuit over unpaid legal fees in Los Angeles

The assault charge stems from an incident on 25 April when Ms Love is alleged to have attacked a woman with a bottle and a torch at the Los Angeles home of former manager and ex-boyfriend Jim Barber.

She will face hearings next week on two other charges. Love will be sentenced on Tuesday for a drug offence in Los Angeles that she pleaded guilty to.

On Thursday she will attend a pre-trial hearing in Beverly Hills over a charge of illegal possession of prescription painkillers.

Ms Love became a fugitive when she did not turn up for her court date on 9 July. Her lawyer said the singer was in New York.

Ms Love was taken only hours later from her Manhattan apartment handcuffed to a stretcher and driven to New York's Bellevue Hospital Center for unspecified medical treatment.
