Wham! George Michael Arrested Again

Singer charged with D.U.I., pot possession in London

George Michael was charged by London police on Thursday with marijuana possession and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The charges stem from a car crash last month, police told the Associated Press and Reuters. Michael’s car crashed into a building in the upscale Hampstead district of north London.

The 47-year-old pop singer was released on a promise to appear in court on August 24.

It’s just the latest in a long string of run-ins with the law for Michael. His driver’s license was suspended for two years in 2007 following a similar arrest, and was arrested again in 2008.

According to the AP, Michael was “questioned by police after his car hit a tractor-trailer” in 2009, but was released without being charged.

And, of course, there was the infamous 1998 arrest for “lewd conduct” in a public restroom in Los Angeles. Michael was convicted of soliciting sex from an undercover police officer, fined and ordered to do 80 hours of community service.
