George Michael charged over photo shop crash

George Michael has been formally charged with possession of cannabis and driving while unfit, it was announced by Scotland Yard yesterday.

As previously reported, Michael was arrested last month after he crashed his car into a branch of Snappy Snaps in Hampstead. He was later bailed pending further investigations. The result of those investigations was yesterday’s charge.

This isn’t the first driving mishap Michael has had in recent years, of course. Last August the singer had a serious crash with a lorry on the A34, shortly after the end of a two year driving ban imposed on him in June 2007 when he pleaded guilty to driving while unfit due to drug use.

Michael was charged after appearing by arrangement at a Camden police station. He is due to appear in court to face the latest charges on 24 Aug.
