= Bad News

8/14/2009 9:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George MichaelGeorge Michael's bad luck behind the wheel continues -- he was arrested in England early Saturday morning (different time zone, people) after being involved in a nasty car accident.

Michael -- who lost his license in 2007 after admitting to driving under the influence of drugs -- smashed his Land Rover into a seven-ton truck at around 1:00 AM in Newbury, Berkshire ... this according to Sky News.

Michael was arrested at the scene, but cops say he was released without being charged with a crime.

That's why bus passes were invented.

Something doesn't sound right. England is 6 hours ahead of me. It is nearly 9pm here.
The story says it happened at 1am and he was released FIVE hours later.
Accident at 1am, 5 hours later would be 6am. Only problem is, it's only nearly 3am there now.

"The Careless Whisper singer's silver Land Rover was left mangled by the 1am crash with the seven-tonne truck on the A34 near Newbury, Berkshire.

Onlookers feared the star was dead as he sat in the wrecked vehicle for ten minutes, said The Sun.

The 46-year-old had only just got his licence back after a two-year ban for drug driving in 2007.

He was taken into custody by police and questioned on suspicion of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs and released around five hours later without charge."

Isn't Sky News English? Someone has the times screwed up somewhere.

Another Michael tragedy? Surname this time? Why all the Michaels making so much news lately. Michael Douglas please dont add yourself to this list.But then thats unlikely. You are married to an extremely sexy woman with no strange sexual or drug-related issues.

So sad. I heard he was getting his life back together after going to an ex-gay church to put his homosexuality behind him and settling down with a woman he had just met.

I remember when George Michael wrote and sang pop songs in the 80s. Now all you hear is bad news about him. What happened? He should either stay home or go back to work.

I love George Michael. This is insane. I don't get where his priorities are. I got to see him at MSG about a year ago and it was such a great concert but it was supposed to be a kind of farewell tour. Why? So he can get into trouble full-time? He shouldn't be allowed to drive. Not just by the law but by people who know him. Don't even let him near keys for crying out loud.

And no woods or public toilets, either. Lock him in a recording studio.

Amazing voice, great songwriter, down to earth guy. Also fought Sony like MJ - George is ok, its just with these celebs when they make mistakes we all hear about it unlike our lives. Give him a break.
