The Careless Whisper hitmaker was detained on Friday (19Sep08) in the Hampstead Heath area of north London, close to his home in Highgate.

The singer was questioned at a nearby police station and later released with a caution for possessing illegal substances.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police says, "We can confirm a 45-year-old man was arrested in the Hampstead heath area on the 19th September on suspicion of possessing drugs.

"He was taken to a North London police station where he received a caution and was released with no further action.
