Oh Boy, another coke bust

A lesson...when you call the cops to say your place has been burglarized, remember to get rid of your drugs before they arrive.

Boy George Tumbles for Drug Charge

Boy George's not-so-boyish antics have landed him in trouble with the law.

The gender-bending singer was arrested early Friday on suspicion of possessing drugs and filing a bogus police report after summoning police to his New York apartment and falsely claiming that it had been burglarized.

Though the details leading up to the arrest remain somewhat sketchy, police said the singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd, called 911 from his Little Italy residence at around 3:14 a.m. and reported a burglary.

When the boys in blue arrived on the scene, they discovered a small amount of cocaine next to a computer, police said. A woman in the apartment said there were more drugs around and officers were continuing to investigate.
