George Michael Pleads Guilty to Driving On Drugs

by at . Comments

What is it with celebrities driving under the influence these days?

Everybody's doing it. Eve. Nicole Richie. Busta Rhymes. Paris Hilton. Ty Pennington. Frankly, we're shocked Britney Spears hasn't been busted.


Anyway, George Michael has just pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while unfit through drugs, admitting he was a little too funky on prescription meds to handle a car when he was arrested last October.

George Michael told the court in North London, according to wire reports, that he got into his car "when I was unfit to drive" and that his episode was "fairly predictable considering how much work I had done that week."

Well, at least he's honest and not trying to shirk responsibility.

Cops arrested Michael - whose real name is George Panayiotou - as motorists complained that a Mercedes-Benz was blocking traffic in North London and then found the "Monkey" singer passed out.

At least he didn't try to assault cops like Jason Wahler would have.

Michael will be sentenced May 30, after more drug tests are administered. A charge of being in charge of a vehcile while unfit through drugs was dropped.

The troubled pop star, who's been involved in many a sex scandal, was first discovered snoozing at the dashboard - in a Range Rover - last May, and was cautioned for drug possession last February.
