George Michael Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges

George Michael pleaded guilty to two drug charges in a London court on Tuesday, stemming from a July 4 car crash, in which he drove his Range Rover through a storefront window.

According to the Associated Press, the singer admitted to being under the influence of drugs and having marijuana in his possession when his vehicle plowed into a photo shop in the early morning hours.

"Mr. Michael looked at the officer with his eyes wide open and the officers could see his pupils were dilated," said prosecutor Penny Fergusson. "They opened the door and could see he was dripping with sweat."

Judge Robin McPhee banned the former Wham! member from driving for six months, and warned he could face jail time when he is sentenced Sept. 14.

"It is a serious matter. Your driving was extremely poor and there was an accident," McPhee said, adding that Michael has already had one conviction. "I make it clear all options in respect of sentencing remain open, including powers to imprison."

Unfortunately for Michael, he's become familiar with the legal system (yet can't seem to learn his lesson!), as this is his second run-in with the law in recent years. The Grammy winner was arrested in 2008 for possession after police caught him with drugs in a public restroom. In 2007, his license was suspended after he hit three parked cars and fled the scene. And who can forget Michael's infamous 1998 arrest in a Los Angeles, Calif., bathroom, where an undercover cop busted him for engaging in lewd acts?
