BOY GEORGE CHOOSES REHAB
In a plea bargain deal that spared him possible jail time, singer Boy George agreed to enter a drug rehabilitation program and perform community service to resolve his arrest last year on a cocaine charge. He pleaded guilty to third-degree false reporting of an incident in Manhattan Criminal Court. "I am relieved and happy that this case has been disposed of, and would like to thank the judge, the district attorney and my attorney, Lou Freeman, for the fair and speedy way it was dealt with," Boy George, 44, said in a statement. "I love New York, and am looking forward to coming back and working in the states later this year."
