George Michael Arrested on Suspicion of Possessing Marijuana



George Michael was arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana early Sunday October 1st, 2006.

George Michael has been dealing with some weighty issues, and this time around the singer is dealing with the police, none other over cannabis.

George was arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana after police responded to complaints that a car was blocking an intersection in North London at 3:22 a.m. Sunday October 1st. Police moved in to the scene and found the star slumped over the steering wheel of his BMW at a traffic light in the North London suburb of Cricklewood.

"There was a concern a mix of drugs and alcohol may have had a bad effect on him," a spokesperson for London's Metropolitan Police told the Daily Mirror. "A doctor was called out to take a blood sample, but thought [Michael] seemed ill and decided he needed to go to the hospital in case he was in a more serious condition."

George was then admitted to the nearby Royal Free Hospital and discharged two hours later, at which point he was taken to the police station. As a consequence, he received a caution for possession of cannabis and was released on bail on a charge of being unfit to drive. He's next scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 20 to determine whether or not he will face charges stemming from the incident.
