George Michael

Singer George Michael had pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of drugs and the possession of cannabis cigarettes.

The 47 year old pop-star appeared in court for about 15 minutes on Tuesday to face charges stemming from a July incident in which he crashed his car into a photographic shop in the early hours of the morning.

Michael, who didn’t speak other than to enter his plea and say his real name, Georgios Panayiotou, had his license suspended for six months.

The judge warned that he could face a prison sentence and noted that he had been found guilty of similar charges before.

Michael’s license was previously suspended thanks to a 2006 incident in which he was found slumped over the wheel of his car in London. He later pleaded guilty to being unfit to drive after taking prescription drugs.

In August 2009 he was also involved in a car accident with a lorry but he was not charged with any offence.

The judge said that he would deliver his sentence on 14 September.
