George Michael admits three-car crash

Former Wham! star George Michael has admitted crashing into three parked cars in north London and will be quizzed by police.

The pop star, who was arrested for possessing cannabis earlier this year when he was found slumped at the wheel of his car, was accused by witnesses on Sunday morning of shunting a string of vehicles in his $105,000 (€85,700) top-of-the-range motor.

The incident saw Michael drive away without telling owners he had bashed their cars, but a representative of the Careless Whisper hitmaker has since reported it to police.

A police spokeswoman confirms: "An appointment has been made to speak to the registered owner (of the vehicle) in due course."

British newspaper The Daily Mirror reports the star has already made contact with victims over financial compensation for the damage caused.
