George Michael Charged With Drug Possession

Singer George Michael has been charged for possession of cannabis and driving while under the influence of drink or drugs.

He was arrested near his home in Hampstead in the early hours of July 4 after a minor car crash outside Snappy Snaps, the photographic shop.

The star was charged this morning and freed on bail.

He will appear before Highbury magistrates on August 24.

"Early one Sunday morning, about a month ago, he had been to the Gay Pride March in London and there was a minor collision between his car and a building," said Sky News' crime correspondent Martin Brunt.

"He was arrested and tested by police. He was bailed and when he returned to the police station in Camden this morning he was told that he would be charged with possession of cannabis and driving while unfit through drink or drugs.

"He has been given bail again and will appear in court in about two weeks time where he will face those charges.

"We don't know whether he will plead guilty or not guilty.

"This is not the first time he has been in this kind of trouble. He has openly talked of his dependence on cannabis and his efforts to try and reduce his intake."
