George Michael: I Was So Not High Off My Mind In That Car Crash

Arrested Friday night after crashing into a commercial truck in London, singer George Michael is telling everyone who will listen (investigators, the entertainment press) that he was not drunk or high or possessed by demons when his Land Rover bit it. That would be good, since Michael just got his driving privileges back after a two-year ban when he was arrested in 2007 for, uh, driving while in a blazed state of glory. (And there have been drug-related incidents since.) It sounds like his version of events might even be true: Investigators questioned him for a few hours before letting him go, and haven’t charged him. Now let the insurance companies battle it out.
