George Michael has been given an eight-week sentence for crashing his car while under the influence of cannabis.

The 47-year-old singer was arrested in July in Hampstead, north London after driving his Range Rover into a branch of photographic store Snappy Snaps.

Michael will serve four weeks in prison, with the rest of his sentence spent out on licence under the supervision of the probation service.

Man on the Street“Ha, I was going to make a joke about a gay man being sent to prison with lots of men forced into being temporarily gay – but for the life of me I can’t think of one.”

Rob Earnsworth, Comedian

Man on the Street“Stoned people tend to drive around at about 15mph, so I have no idea how he keeps driving into things, it’s almost like he wants to be caught. Oh.”

Mike Shane, Snooker player

Woman on the Street“I don’t care what the judge says, I still maintain that branch of Snappy Snaps jumped out in front of him.”
