    George Michael really likes to drive drunk! According to The Associated Press, the British pop singer has been charged with drinking and driving offenses after crashing his ride into a building in an upscale residential area. George, George, George! Get your shit together, bro.

    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. George makes no secret of his use of pot, so this news certainly isn't surprising by any means. Michael is set to appear at London's Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on August 24 to answer the charges against him.

    The "Faith" singer was arrested last month after his car crashed into a building in the Hampstead district of north London. Additionally, last year, Michael was questioned by police after his car hit a tractor-trailer, but he was eventually released. He was banned from driving for two years in 2007 after pleading guilty to driving while on drugs.

    Someone take this man's keys away.

    What is your fave George Michael hit from the ‘80s? I love "Father Figure."
