George Michael

Gets 8 Weeks in Jail

9/14/2010 11:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So much for 'Freedom' ... George Michael has just been sentenced to serve 8 weeks in a London jail for driving under the influence of drugs on July 4.

The 47-year-old singer has previously admitted to getting behind the wheel of his Range Rover while high on weed and crashing into a photo shop.

A dapper-looking George, seen above on his way into  the courtroom, seemed to be in good spirits before the sentencing.

So far, no word on when George will begin his stint behind bars.

Story developing ...

After his sentence was announced, he reportedly asked if he was on the all you can eat plan.

It's about time he was properly punished before he killed someone with his drug driving, it's lucky no one was standing in front of that shop when he crashed into it.

He's got more undercover security personnel hovering around him than most heads of state.

Is that like America? Will he have to eventually do like ten days instead of eight weeks?
