George Michael pleads guilty to drug possession

Posted on

George Michael pleaded guilty this morning in a London court to charges of driving under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis, according to the AP. The judge in the case suspended Michael’s driver’s license for six months and said the singer could face prison time. The charges relate to an incident on July 4 when Michael crashed his Range Rover into a photo shop in London. The AP reports that tests showed he had taken gamma-hydroxybutyrate, a so-called “date-rape drug” because it leaves people groggy and powerless.

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.
