Someone needs to revoke George Michael's license...for good.

Fresh off of his two-year driving ban, the singer was arrested Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol after a London car crash, says the BBC.

A spokeswoman for the Thames Valley Police confirms that Michael was taken into police custody for nearly five hours. "He was later released without charge," she added.

Michael's Land Rover was left mangled after colliding with a seven-ton truck around 1 a.m. After the accident, the other driver, Laurie Rowe, told the U.K.'s Daily Mirror: "Michael seemed completely disoriented, like he had no idea what was going on." Rowe continued: "He looked totally dazed and even tried to climb into the cab of my [truck]."

Rowe recalled seeing Michael's car weaving across the highway in his rear view mirror before the impact: "When out to see what had happened, I didn't think he would have survived."

Michael has been arrested for a multitude of offenses over the past few years, most recently in 2007, when the singer was found slumped over the wheel of his car with a veritable "cocktail of drugs" in his system.
