Gay singer George Michael has been given a police caution for drugs possession after he was found slumped at the wheel of his car in Hyde Park, London, last month.

The former WHAM! member was taken into custody at the end of February when police arrested him on suspicion of possessing class C drugs and being unfit to drive.

He attended Belgravia police station yesterday where he received a caution for marijuana, but charges of being unfit to drive were dropped after medical examinations.

Michael admitted the incident was his “own stupid fault,” he said: “I was in possession of class C drugs, which is an offence, and I have no complaints about the police, who were professional throughout.”
