Barrymore - Drugs Charges
TV presenter Michael Barrymore has reportedly been charged
with cocaine possession after being involved in a car accident in the early
hours of Tuesday morning.
According to the Sunday Mirror the troubled star was also charged with drunk
and disorderly behaviour after allegedly arguing with police at the scene of
the incident, which happened at around 4.30am.
The arrest happened after police found a Citroen DS3 car - the model that
Barrymore drives - crashed into the kerb just yards from his flat in Acton,
Both he and another man in his 30s were detained on suspicion of
drink-driving after they denied being behind the wheel at the time.
However further searches led to Barrymore also facing the drugs charge.
"The car had collided with the kerb just off the main road," a source told
"The officers were surprised when they stopped and realised one of the men
was Michael Barrymore."
The 59-year-old is due to appear in court in Ealing on December 7
