A stranger and the pounds 6m writ.

GEORGE Michael has been handed a pounds 6 million writ. It comes as a result of legal action by the police office who arrested him in a public lavatory in Los Angeles. Michael did not challenge a charge of lewd conduct, agreed to undertake 81 hours of community service and undergo counselling.

Now police officer Marcelo Rodrigues has sued because, in interviews, Michael wrongly claimed that he had been entrapped. Marcelo also claims he was ridiculed in the star's record Outside.

The writ was served while the sodomist sat in a Chinese restaurant. Of course the court knew that if any strange man walked up to George Michael in a public place he would grab the first thing proffered.
