George Michael has escaped police charges following an incident on Easter Sunday (16APR06) which saw him career into three parked cars in north London. The former Wham! star faced police questioning and public embarrassment when neighbours claimed to have witnessed Michael colliding with three parked cars while he attempted a tricky manoeuvre on a steep hill - then driving off without reporting the incident. A spokesman said, "Inquiries were made to establish the owner of the vehicle, but the file is now closed." The star's insurers are reportedly footing the $26,250 (GBP15,000) repair bill. In February (06) Michael was cautioned for possessing cannabis when he was found slumped at the wheel of his car in London's Hyde Park Corner.
