George Michael crashes into photo shop after gay pride parade

Pop singer George Michael was arrested in the wee hours of Sunday morning after driving his SUV into the front of a closed photo shop in London. The network of closed-circuit TV cameras that monitor the city captured his vehicle hopping the curb and plowing into the Snappy Snaps store, reported first by The Mirror. He was released and is due back in court next month. Michael was convicted of “unfit” driving in 2007, and only recently had his driving privileges reinstated. This accident is the latest in a long list of at least seven previous run-ins with police, and the Sun has an overview. And late last year he gave an interview to the Guardian in which he expressed no remorse over his hard-partying image, saying, “Nobody wants to regularly smoke crack.”



George gave an interview to “The South Bank Show” in 2006 during which he appeared to be smoking a joint, and Sky News has the video:
