George Michael is Sentenced for Drug-Driving

George Michael is Sentenced for Drug-DrivingGeorge Michael pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to driving being under the influence of drugs.

The 47-year-old Georgios Panayiotou, aka George Michael, was given a six-month interim driving ban, will return next month for sentencing and was told by the judge this was “a serious matter” with the prospect of imprisonment.

The incident took place last month when the singer crashed his Range Rover in north London – police patrol found him slumped at the wheel though presumably resisted the urge to say, “Wake me up before you go!” – at the not exactly glamorous location of a Snappy Snaps.

As for the court hearing Tuesday, Michael only spoke to confirm his details and enter his plea, though he removed his trademark dark glasses. And darker days may lie ahead.
