‘Drug-Driving’

George Michael’s Harrowing Ride

He’s certainly no “father figure.” After smashing his car into the back of a truck in England early Saturday, George Michael was arrested on suspicion of “drug-driving.” He drove his silver Range Rover into the back of a seven-ton truck just after 1 a.m. Saturday. His car bounced and skidded to a stop—witnesses thought Michael was dead, but the singer miraculously climbed out of the wreckage. According to the trucker, “He must have been doing 100 mph. When he got out he couldn't walk straight." An onlooker who stopped nearby said of Michael: “Eventually the guy got out of his car. He came over to my cab and asked if I had stopped to give him a lift. I was stunned. He was absolutely not with it, so I told him no. But he insisted and came around the other side of the truck and tried to get in the passenger door.”
