Former pop singer Boy George has had another run-in with the law, as police in London charged him on Tuesday with falsely imprisoning another man.
According to authorities, the 47-year-old singer and DJ has been released on bail over the spring 2007 incident and ordered to appear in court Nov. 22.
Boy George, whose real name is George O'Dowd, allegedly chained a 28-year-old man to a wall at his east London home in late April. Police arrested O'Dowd at the time and later released him.
In April, local papers reported that a male model claimed to have been chained and threatened after visiting the singer's London flat.
Last year, O'Dowd fulfilled a week of court-ordered community service in New York, after admitting he falsely reported a burglary at his Manhattan apartment in 2005. Officers dispatched to investigate found cocaine in the premises.
Best known as the lead singer of pop group Culture Club during the 1980s, O'Dowd was the voice behind hits like Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want to Hurt Me.
