George Michael In Drugs Arrest

GEORGE MICHAEL was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs in the early hours of yesterday (26FEB06) morning after he was discovered slumped at the wheel of his car in central London.

The FAITH singer was woken up by police, who had been alerted by a concerned passer-by, as he sat in his vehicle near the British capital's Hyde Park Corner at approximately 1.50am.

Michael, 42, was suspected of being unfit to drive and was immediately arrested and taken to a nearby police station. Cops allegedly found two packets containing cannabis in his car.

A police doctor later determined Michael had been capable of driving, although the singer still faces action over the alleged drugs possession.

He was bailed at 9am yesterday and must return to West End Central police station next month (MAR06) when the substances have been analysed.

A police spokesman says "We were called by a member of the public to a man seen slumped over the steering wheel of a car.

"Police spoke to the 42-year-old man. A search revealed what are believed to be controlled substances. He was subsequently arrested."

In November (05), Michael spoke of his cannabis addiction as his "biggest regret in life".
