    LONDON — British media reports say George Michael has been arrested after a car crash in London.

    The BBC says the 47-year-old singer was arrested Sunday after police responded to reports that a car had crashed into a building in Hampstead, an upscale residential area in north London.

    Metropolitan Police say only that they arrested a man in his 40s early Sunday in Hampstead on suspicion of being unfit to drive. They say the man was taken to a police station and released on bail pending further inquiries.

    The singer's publicists in London declined comment Tuesday.

    Last year, Michael was questioned by police after his car hit a tractor-trailer, but was released. He was banned from driving for two years in 2007 after pleading guilty to driving on drugs.

    George Michael charged with drug, driving offenses

    LONDON — British police say singer George Michael has been charged with drugs and driving offenses after his car crashed into a building in an upscale residential area.

    London's Metropolitan Police department said Michael, 47, was charged on Thursday with possession of cannabis and with driving while unfit through drink or drugs.

    In a statement, police say Michael will appear at London's Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on Aug. 24.

    Michael was arrested last month after his car crashed into a building in the Hampstead district of north London.

    Last year, Michael was questioned by police after his car hit a tractor-trailer, but was released. He was banned from driving for two years in 2007 after pleading guilty to driving while on drugs.
