CityNews: George Michael Admits To Driving On Drugs
George Michael Admits To Driving On Drugs
Wednesday May 9, 2007
Singer George Michael said he felt "very ashamed" as he pleaded guilty on Tuesday to driving while unfit due to drugs after police found him slumped at the wheel of his car in London. The 43-year-old blamed his behavior on a mixture of tiredness and prescription medicine.
"I did something very stupid," he told a court without giving details of any drugs he had taken, media reports said. "I am perfectly aware that I did something very wrong and got into my car when I was unfit to drive. I was not in my normal physical state and I am perfectly prepared to accept the correct punishment for that and I would have accepted it a long time ago."
He has yet to be sentenced and faces a further hearing on May 30 for the court to consider his guilty plea, a Crown Prosecution Service spokeswoman said. The charge carries a maximum six-month jail term and a fine of up to $9,968. The singer has had a series of brushes with the law. In April 1998, he was arrested for engaging in a "lewd act" in a public toilet in Los Angeles, after which he ended years of speculation over his sexuality by announcing that he was gay. He angered mental health charities last year by smoking a marijuana joint during a television interview, "This stuff keeps me sane and happy," he said.
The singer is due to start a European tour in late May.

Country Singer Martina McBride Receives Protection Order Against Alleged Stalker
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Martina McBride has received an order of protection against a man charged with stalking her. Ricky D. Fissel, 42, is charged with stalking the 40-year-old country singer after he came to her home twice in early April.
McBride's husband, John McBride, said in court papers that Fissel came to the door around 10 p.m. on April 1 and asked if the singer was home. He told the man to get off the property, but Fissel returned a week later around 9:15 p.m. to ask him ''who lives here?'' before speeding off.
After John McBride identified Fissel in a photo lineup, a search at Fissel's home revealed a newspaper article with Martina McBride's photo circled with hearts drawn around it, the legal statement said.
The singer was in court Tuesday seeking the protection order. A spokeswoman did not immediately return a phone message for comment.
Fissel is to appear in general sessions court on the mental health docket May 11, court officials said.

Simpson and Mayer aren't calling it quits yet

Updated: 7:36 a.m. ET May 22, 2007
Jessica Simpson isn’t back on the market quite yet.
The “Dukes of Hazzard” star reportedly broke up with boyfriend John Mayer — but the split isn’t working out so well, according to In Touch.
Mayer was spotted leaving Simpson’s New York hotel room at the Soho Grand yesterday, reports the mag. He was said to be smiling.
“They definitely went on a date last night,” a “pal” of Simpson told In Touch. But now, apparently, Simpson is cautious about getting back with Mayer — who had told her when they briefly split that he needed space.
“She still loves him, but he’s not stable,” the friend said. “He’s scared of commitment. He breaks up with her and then regrets it and then begs her to get back together.”

Police Consider Charges Against Akon For Tossing Teen Off Stage
By Mike Winslow
Date: 6/6/2007 10:00 am
Police in Fishkill, New York may question Akon and file charges against R&B singer Akon, after footage surfaced of the singer tossing a fan into the crowd surfaced on the Internet.
The incident took place at Dutchess stadium in Fishkill, during the annual KFEST concert sponsored by radio station WSPK 104.7, after an unidentified fan tossed an object on the stage, narrowly missing the chart-topping Senegalese-American singer.
A young male who looks to be in his teens was called to the stage, after Akon queried the crowd to find out who threw the object.
As soon as the male steps on the stage, Akon quickly scooped him up and literally threw him into the crowd.
Footage of the incident didn't capture the teen getting up, but he refused medical treatment and was not hurt as a result of the incident.
Police in Fishkill are still searching for the teen, to determine if he would like to file charges against Akon.
"If and when they [police] determine that something has occurred, they will forward the case to us and we will review that," Dutchess County Senior District Attorney Edward McLoughlin told the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Akon was already embroiled in controversy, after footage of an April 12 concert in Trinidad surfaced, in which he simulated sex with a girl on teen.
It was later revealed that the girl was 14 and had illegally entered the club.
Still, the incident caused Verizon to drop Akon as a spokesman for the company.
