For a while there we were starting to think George Michael was untouchable like Charlie Sheen. He kept getting busted with drug possession and DUI's and would wake away with small fines. But his luck has officially changed.
A judge just formally charged him with drug possession and driving while intoxicated. He was charged this morning and later freed on bail to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court later this month.
The charges stem from an incident last month, when George, who just recently finished a two-year driving ban, was arrested after losing control of his Range Rover and crashing into the door of a shop in the early hours of July 4th. It was after attending the Gay Pride parade in London.
He was also arrested in September 2008 after being caught in a public toilet in possession of crack cocaine and marijuana.
The year before he was handed 100 hours community service for drug driving after being found slumped at the wheel of his Mercedes car by police.
He recently talked about his drug use saying: "People want to see me as tragic with all the cottaging and drug-taking. I don't see them as weaknesses any more. It's just who I am. I've done different things at different times that I shouldn't have done, once or twice, you know. Of course, nobody wants to regularly smoke crack."
This guy needs rehab more badly than Lindsay Lohan! Someone should ship him off to a rehab center for a few months, because at this rate, he's sure to harm himself or someone else while high or drunk behind the wheel of a car.
