George Michael ditches bail

The Press Ascociation has reported today that George Michael has abandoned an application for bail.

Earlier this week, Michael was sentenced to eight weeks in prison for crashing his car while high on cannabis, and lawyers acting on his behalf had planned to ask for bail for the singer in an apparent bid to appeal against his sentence.

"The bail application has been abandoned," said a spokeswoman for Blackfriars Crown Court in London, where Michael had been listed to appear via video link from Pentonville Prison. His lawyer declined to comment on the decision.
