George Michael on unfit driving charge

The star will be in court next month

George Michael has been charged by police with being unfit to drive.

The move follows an incident in the superstar singer’s car in Cricklewood, north London in October. At the time, Michael was arrested on suspicion of being unfit to drive and possessing drugs. He was subsequently cautioned for possessing cannabis, but was charged with the driving offence just before Christmas, aspokesperson for the Metropolitan Police has confirmed.

The BBC reports that he will appear at Brent Magistrates’ Court in the UK capital on 11 January.

The singer was arrested after motorists called police to report a car causing an obstruction at traffic lights. This came after another incident in In February, when Michael was cautioned by police for possessing cannabis after being found in his car in central London.

Michael recently went on his first tour in 15 years in support of his career-spanning Best Of album ’25’. The sold-out European jaunt was rapturously received.
