George Michael charged

British pop icon George Michael has reportedly been charged with driving under the influence of drink and drugs. 

The 47-year-old was arrested on Sunday after police were called with reports that a car had crashed into a building on Hampstead High Street.

He was taken to a north London police station and was bailed, but is due to appear before Highbury magistrates on August 24. 

Michael was also in hot water with the law only last month, after reportedly ploughing his Range Rover into a shop on Hampstead High Street.
