After police got reports that his Range Rover had crashed into a Snappy Snaps shop in London following his attendance at London’s gay pride parade, he was taken into custody at a north London police station under suspicion of being unfit to drive. Michael posted bail and will return in August for a court date.

Michael just regained his driving privileges last year. They were suspended in 2007 for two years for driving while unfit due to drugs. He was accused of driving into three parked cars and driving off without first telling the cars’ owners.
