George Michael speaks out over car crash

Singer says he was 'stone cold sober' behind the wheel

George Michael speaks out over car crash
George Michael has denied being under the influence of drink or drugs after he was arrested following a car crash.

The singer was held by police after his silver Land Rover hit an articulated lorry in Berkshire in the early hours of Friday (August 14).

The star was quizzed by police on suspicion of driving under the influence of drink or drugs, but released without charge a few hours later.

The 46-year-old has since said he was "stone cold sober" despite the crash, reports BBC News.

In a statement, Michael added: "Neither of us was charged because we were both stone cold sober. We both think the other is to blame so this is just an insurance fight.

"I don't want my fans or my family worried by what they are reading all over again."

Police were called to the crash, involving a silver Land Rover and a lorry, two miles north of the M4.
