George Michael Moons 2006 On Its Way Out

Seemingly determined to end the year with bang, George Michael managed to squeeze in one last criminal offense on New Year’s Eve. Reuters has the dirt:

The singer George Michael will appear before a British court in January charged with being unfit to drive, police in London said on Sunday. The 43-year-old musician, charged under his real name of Georgios Panayiotou, will appear before magistrates on January 11.

I can’t possibly imagine the shenanigans he’s got planned for 2007. The man has set the bar pretty damn high thus far. I’m expecting something involving the Queen of England, a bottle of Southern Comfort, a drunk and disorderly David Hasselhoff bound and gagged in duct tape to a metal bed frame–all in the middle of a shopping center somewhere in London.
