Michael Admits To 'Stupid' Drugs Possession

Subscribe to George Michael alerts

LATEST: Pop superstar George Michael has admitted to possessing drugs after he was discovered slumped at the wheel of his car in the early hours of yesterday (26FEB06) morning.

The FAITH singer claims the incident, in which he was woken by police as he sat in his vehicle near London's Hyde Park Corner at approximately 1.50am, was his "own stupid fault, as usual".

Two packets containing cannabis were allegedly found in Michael's car after a concerned passer-by alerted police to his predicament.

A police spokesman has since confirmed Michael was held on suspicion of possessing class C drugs, a group which includes cannabis, tranquilisers and certain painkillers.

In a statement released today (27FEB06), the singer said, "It's my own stupid fault, as usual. I was in possession of class C drugs, which is an offence, and I have no complaints about the police, who were professional throughout."

And in a reference to his song OUTSIDE, about his 1998 arrest for engaging in a "lewd act" in a Los Angeles public toilet, Michael jokingly added, "I promise I won't make a record out of this one - even though it's tempting."

Michael was also keen to point out that a police doctor who tested him concluded he was capable of driving.

It has also emerged a police officer gave the millionaire a lift to his Hampstead home when he was bailed at 9am yesterday, after cops accidentally immobilised his car.

Michael must return to West End Central police station next month (MAR06) when the substances have been analysed.
