George Michael arrest over drugs
Pop singer George Michael has been cautioned by police after being arrested in a public toilet in London for possession of drugs, reported BBC.
"A 45-year-old man was arrested on 19 September on suspicion of possession of drugs in the Hampstead Heath area," a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.
The singer was taken to a police station and given the caution for possessing class A and class C drugs.
Last month, he completed his 25 Live world tour, his first for 15 years.
After performing "final" dates at London's Earls Court and in Copenhagen, Michael said he would be retiring from arena and stadium shows.
He said he would leave the "bells and whistles" of large-scale tours behind after the tour because he wanted a "quieter life".
During the concerts, he performed his number one hit Outside in a police uniform in a jokey reference to previous arrests.
The song itself referred to his arrest in 1998 when he was detained by an undercover police officer for lewd conduct in a public toilet in Beverly Hills, California.
Until that time he had not "come out" in public, but the arrest and subsequent conviction forced him to reveal his homosexuality and his relationship with American Kenny Goss.
Michael also came into conflict with the law in October 2006 when he was found slumped over the wheel of his car.
And last May he was given a two-year driving ban after pleading guilty to driving while unfit through drugs.
Earlier this year, the 45-year-old singer signed a multi-million pound deal with publisher HarperCollins to write his autobiography, which he said would be a "no-holds barred" account of his life.
And during his final shows on stage, he revealed that he had written a Christmas song which would be released this December - his first festive song since Wham!'s Last Christmas, initially released in 1984.
