George Michael pleads guilty to drug offenses
Pop star gets banned from driving for six months
George Michael pleaded guilty to drug offenses Tuesday, with a judge suspending his driver's license for six months.
In a 15-minute appearance in a British court, Michael admitted to driving under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis, the Associated Press reported. The pop star had had a car crash last month, after which police said they had found him "spaced out."
The judge highlighted a prior convinction under similar circumstances and warned Michael about his "extremely poor" driving due to his condition.
Tests showed the singer had taken "a therapeutic quantity of an antidepressant as well as gamma-hydroxybutyrate, a so-called "date-rape drug" because it leaves people groggy and powerless," the AP said.
