SINGER George Michael is in hot water with the law again after reportedly ploughing his car into a shop on Hampstead High Street.
The former Wham star was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning on suspicion of being unfit to drive.
His 4x4 was spotted on CCTV at around 3.30am mounting the pavement before crashing into the Snappy Snaps store, damaging the shop window and frame.
It is not the first time the singer has been at the centre of a police investigation for his driving. In October 2006 he was handed a two-year-driving ban after being found unconscious at the wheel of his car in Cricklewood.

Officers attended and a man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of being unfit to drive. He was taken to a North London police station and later bailed to return at a date in August."
