From the “you’ve got to be kidding” department.
Boy George is reportedly pissed at the treatment he was given by the NYPD, claiming that when he was arrested last October on cocaine charges he was forced to drink his own urine while in custody because they wouldn’t give him any water:
“All my life I’ve thought: ‘I never want to get in trouble with the law in America.’ But everything happens for a reason, I suppose – I just haven’t worked out what it is yet. I think everyone knows what happened that night. Some parts were exaggerated, some were underplayed. But when I was arrested the police were really hideous to me. I just couldn’t understand why they would be so bad – they wouldn’t even give you water so I had to drink my own urine in the cells. Seriously. I thought: ‘What have I done to deserve this? What happened to beyond reasonable doubt?'”
Not sure where the Irish Examiner gets their info but don’t you think if George had been treated like that originally he would have whined about it long ago?
Boy George recently finished cleaning the streets of New York as his community service sentence.
