A judge said Friday that she will not sentence pop singer George Michael to jail for driving while impaired. Instead, he was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and has been disqualified from driving for two years.
Michael, whose real name is George Panayiotou, had pleaded guilty on May 8 to a charge of driving while unfit.
Police said Michael was found slumped at the wheel of his car at an intersection in northern London after witnesses had observed the vehicle weaving into the wrong side of the road at around 5 to 10 miles per hour in the early hours of the morning of October 1, 2006.
Michael told the court he was ashamed that ''I had done something really wrong in putting other people at risk.'' (AP)
