Driving charge for singer Michael
George Michael
George Michael was found in his car in north London
Singer George Michael has been charged by police with being unfit to drive, it has emerged.

Following an incident in his car in north London in October, the star, 43, was arrested on suspicion of being unfit to drive and possessing drugs.

He was cautioned for possessing cannabis, but only charged with the driving offence just before Christmas, Metropolitan Police have confirmed.

He will appear at Brent Magistrates' Court in London on 11 January.

The singer was arrested after motorists called police to report a car causing an obstruction at traffic lights in Cricklewood.

He was later cautioned for drug possession and released on police bail pending further inquiries on his fitness to drive.

In February, Mr Michael was cautioned by police for possessing cannabis after being found in his car at Hyde Park Corner, central London.
