( news.bbc.co.uk ) - Singer George Michael has been told he will not receive a custodial sentence for driving while unfit. The 43-year-old has pleaded guilty to the offence and is awaiting sentence at Brent Magistrates Court, north London.
Mr Michael was arrested on 1 October 2006 after being found slumped at the steering wheel of his car in the early hours of the morning.
The singer, who performs two shows at Wembley Stadium this weekend, has again expressed regret for the incident. "I was ashamed I had done something really wrong in putting other people at risk," he told the court. Magistrate Katherine Marshall said she was considering giving him a suspended sentence or community service.
