George Michael Arrested for Drugs!

Old habits seem to die hard for George Michael.

According to BBC news, the pop singer was arrested on Friday for allegedly possessing crack cocaine and marijuana. George was caught in a bathroom in London's Hampstead Heath area, after an attendant snitched to police that there was some funny business going on.

He was released with a warning (!), which is called a "caution" in the U.K.

"We can confirm a 45-year-old man was arrested in the Hampstead Heath area on the 19th of September on the suspicion of possessing drugs," a Scotland Yard spokesman said. "He was taken to a North London police station where he received a caution and was released with no further action. The caution was for the possession of Class A and Class C drugs, cocaine and cannabis."

George released his own statement after the bust: "I want to apologize to my fans for screwing up again, and to promise them I'll sort myself out. And to say sorry to everybody else, just for boring them."

No reason was given as to why George got off so easily -- which is particularly weird, since he was just busted in 2006.
