Description: This is where singer George Michael has been arrested in Hampstead, London, on suspicion of being unfit to drive.
The 47-year-old was arrested on Sunday after police were called with reports that a car had crashed into a building on Hampstead High Street.
He was taken to a north London police station and was bailed to return in August pending further inquiries.
In June 2007, the singer was banned for two years after pleading guilty to driving while unfit through drugs.
He was accused of colliding with three parked cars and driving off without notifying the owners.
