George Michael Pleads Guilty to Driving on Drugs

5/8/2007 7:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George MichaelGeorge Michael has just pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while unfit through drugs, admitting he was just a little too funky on prescription meds to handle a car when he was arrested last October.

The singer told the court in North London, according to wire reports, that he got into his car "when I was unfit to drive" and that his slumped-over-the-wheel episode was "fairly predictable considering how much work I had done that week." Cops arrested Michael -- real name George Panayiotou -- when motorists complained that a Mercedes-Benz was blocking traffic in North London and then found the "Monkey" singer passed out.

Michael will be sentenced May 30, after more drug tests are administered. A charge of being in charge of a vehcile while unfit through drugs was dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service.

The troubled pop star was discovered snoozing at the dashboard -- in a Range Rover -- last May, and was cautioned for drug possession last February.

George, no, you're doing it wrong! You're supposed to say it isn't fair, the cops only pulled you over because you're pretty, and it only happened in the first place because your publicist never told you that you shouldn't drive when you are stoned.

Yeah Goerge, I have to agree with bob # 1. You're going about it all wrong!
Take lessons from Paris. She can show all the tricks. She may even come out with a new book entitled " How to beat the law like a Hilton" if she gets out of this one.

Stay tuned folks.
