George Michael was arrested this weekend after he was caught in a London restroom using a "small amount" of crack cocaine and marijuana. Michael received a cautionary warning and was released after he admitted his guilt. No further legal action is expected, said a spokesperson for Scotland Yard. Interestingly enough, the arrest comes on the ten-year anniversary of the last time Michael was arrested for acting indecently in a public bathroom: In 1998, Michael was busted in a men's room at Los Angeles' Will Rogers Memorial Park for "engaging in a lewd act." More recently, Michael had found himself in trouble with drugs when he was found passed out in his car on three different occasions in 2006. He pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of drugs the next year and was banned from being behind the wheel for two years. In a statement released via his publicist today, Michael said, "I want to apologize to my fans for screwing up again, and to promise them I'll sort myself out. And to say sorry to everybody else, just for boring them."
