George Michael Granted Freedom From Jail

by at .

The penal system in this country can't contain Lindsay Lohan, but George Michael actually served four weeks in the UK before enjoying the taste of ... freedom.

The singer was released from jail Monday after serving about half of an eight week term for DUI and possession of marijuana, the AP reports. Not too shabby.


George pleaded guilty to the charge soon after the accident.

Thrown in the slammer September 14 after crashing into a storefront with his Range Rover, Michael admitted he smoked marijuana and had taken a sedative.

"I just want to start again," the AP quoted Michael as saying upon his release, which is contingent upon him abiding by his parole and paying $2,000 in fines.

He has lost his driver's license for five years.
