Boy George flew back to Britain after his drugs arrest in New York

Singer Boy George flew back to Britain on Sunday after his drugs arrest in New York, refusing to comment on the affair as he arrived at Heathrow airport.

Police arrested the British musician on Friday after they found a small amount of cocaine at his Manhattan apartment. He was released on Saturday after appearing at Manhattan Criminal Court charged with possessing drugs and must return to New York for another hearing on December 19.

"I am not speaking to anybody about it," George told reporters at Heathrow. "Don't ask me any questions because you are not going to get any answers at all."

It remains unclear what prison term, if any, he faces since police said they had yet to determine with precision what quantity of drugs may have been in his apartment.

In 1995, he recounted his drug-induced fall from grace in his autobiography "Take It Like A Man", writing about his convictions and relapses and about how he had finally kicked his habit. In recent years, George has made a new career as a disc jockey and record producer, reported Reuters.
