George Michael

I Was on Drugs During

Car Crash

8/24/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Michael rolled into a London courtroom this morning and pled guilty to being high on weed  when he got behind the wheel of his Range Rover and crashed into a photo shop on July 4.

The judge immediately suspended Michael's license for 6 months and warned that he could still face prison time over the matter ... because he already has a prior conviction for driving while stoned.

After his appearance, Michael was escorted to his waiting ride by British police in funny hats.

Michael is due back in court for sentencing on September 14.

This really gives a bad name to pot!!
I have never in my life even came close to getting in a car crash after smoking pot. ALOT of pot.

Stupid Ass,

I smoke weed as well, but am responsible enough to know not to drive on it. No different than alcohol. And if your rich, let someone else drive, doesn't that make more sense?

He should go to prison

Well I tend to Zone out, So Not a good smart thing while driving, and trust me, I live in Tampa bay, Florida, and getting pulled over with even a roach in your car, you would think that you were a wanted murderer.
Not worth the risk or hassle.
