George Michael arrested after crashing into shop

Tuesday July 6, 2010

Faith singer George Michael was taken into police custody after crashing his Range Rover into a storefront in Hampstead early Sunday morning.

The 47-year-old singer was not injured and waited for officers to arrive, but when they did, he was arrested, according to reports.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard explained, "Police were called at approximately 3.30 a.m. on Sunday to reports of a vehicle in collision with a building.

"Officers attended and a man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of being unfit to drive. He was taken to a North London police station and later bailed to return during August pending inquiries."

It's not the first time that George has faced such problems.

Last year the singer was also held by police on suspicion of driving under the influence after he collided with a lorry in Berkshire.
