George Michael charged with driving under the influence

George Michael has been charged with driving under the influence of both drink and drugs as well as being in possession of some weed.

The BBC reports that former Wham! singer is set to appear at Highbury magistrates court on 24 August.

The 47-year-old was charged on Thursday morning after reporting to a police station in Camden in north London before being released on bail.

Michael was arrested back on 4 July in Hampstead after reportedly crashing his car into a Snappy Snaps photo shop as he returned home from London’s Gay Pride parade.

It’s not the first time that the 'Faith' singer has been pulled in by the fuzz. He was cautioned for possession of drugs as well as being arrested for a spot of toilet trading in California back in 1998.
