Michael's Prison Move

GEORGE MICHAEL has been transferred to a prison outside of London to serve out the remainder of his jail sentence.
The former Wham! singer was locked up in the U.K. capital's tough Pentonville jail on Tuesday (14Sep10) after he was sentenced to eight weeks behind bars for possession of cannabis and driving under the influence of drugs.
He dropped a planned appeal against his sentence on Friday (17Sep10), just hours ahead of a scheduled appeal and bail hearing at a court in London.
Instead he spent the day travelling 70 miles (112 kilometres) from Britain's capital to Highpoint Prison in Suffolk, England where he will serve out the rest of his sentence.
Michael's sentence stems from his arrest in July (10) after he crashed into a shopfront near his home in Hampstead, north London. The star admitted smoking dope before climbing behind the wheel.
As well as the jail time, Michael was fined $1,875 (£1,250) with $150 (£100) in court costs, and banned from the roads for five years.
