    Police were reportedly called to the scene after his silver Land Rover collided with a truck, just after midnight. After the incident, Michael was taken to the Loddon Valley police station near Reading and subsequently released.

    Michael was previously arrested in Sept. 2008 in a London restroom on allegations of drug possession. He received a cautionary warning.

    Friday's accident comes weeks after Michael concluded a two-year driving ban stemming from a previous DUI charge, which he pled guilty to in May 2007.

    "I have been sentenced today on the basis of unfit driving through tiredness and prescription medicines, which I fully accept responsibility for," he told The Associated Press at the time.
