George Michael Won't Do Time for DUI

6/8/2007 10:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Michael won't have to do any time behind bars for his DUI -- but he won't be able to drive for a couple years, and that's probably a very good thing.

Michael was in a London court today to face the music, after pleading guilty to "driving while unfit through drugs," and the judge slapped him with 100 hours of community service, banned him from getting behind the wheel -- fit or unfit -- of any car for two years, and made him pay a whopping $4,622 in fines. He's pictured (right) outside of court, possibly doing the dance to his hit "Monkey."

A cranky George told reporters, "Don't bother to ask any questions, because believe me I am not going to answer them." He called the media coverage of the case -- in which he was found slumped over his steering wheel after passing out in his car -- "farcical."

The cruise-challenged singer will next be seen performing at the first concert in the new Wembley Stadium in London this weekend.

He only had to pay $4,622 in fees. That is a drop in the bucket for him. Another celeb slap on the wrist.

...But I would suspect that GM probably would have to do time should he defy court orders and drive a car in the next couple of years. That's the part so many Paris Hilton supporters forget about her case. She HAD all the opportunity in the world to not step foot in jail and defied the court orders (to drive) and then feigned ignorance (which is never an excuse regarding the law anyway). ALL of these major celebs has enough money to hire a driver for 6 months or even 2 years. And in Paris' case, where are all her "friends" to give her a lift? Maybe her mommy and daddy can "buy" her a chauffeur as a birthday present? With what they saved on sending her to college, surely, the could afford to make that "investment" in their daughter's future.

I should move to Hollywood. You go to jail in NJ / NY for a DUI (not that I drink, although I should start after watching all the media coverage on Paris). There are 2 systems of justice in this country; one for the working poor and another for the rich. Sadly that will never change. Maybe will all of this media attention on Paris, etc.. some new laws will crop up in Hollywood.

Hey George Michael, how is your base with Jayzee....the make up artist. Have you paid Timothy Allen Griffin for anal sex lately. He is really not worth the money, he comes after 3 minutes and is almost 50 years old. He is black, he has a sleazy black boyfriend named Don Brown,from Minneapolis. He is disgusting. He fancies himself a food critic. More like a Madam. They are dispicable creatures, and I am gay. They are blackmailing me. They don't even own the house they live in. It is owned by the Asian family that owns Star Supermakets in Honolulu. They rent it to men, like me, who they are trying to groom to be escorts. You should ask Katherine Zeta Jones in your next interview. Seriously! Arent you GLAAD

This has been will do anything to keep his sorry ass name in the headlines. A disgrace to the gay community. First he was arrested for being a tea room queen and now he was pinched for drugs. HELLO? This wimpy queen has been on drugs before. I guess rehab is next. He can join Lindsay Lohan and the rest of that sorry pack of cellophane celebrities. Like, who gives a crap?

I would like to see you compare pictures of Angelina Jolie and Hunter Tylo from the CBS soap, "The Bold and The Beautiful." Hunter Tylo, in my opinion, is just as beautiful as Angelina, but she gives birth the old fashioned way, instead of getting all the publicity of going to other countries and adopting them.
