2006_03_boy_george.jpgLooks like Boy George won't be behind bars for blowing rails after all, he will be raking up leaves and picking up trash however. The cocaine possession charges were dismissed yesterday, but the pop icon will still have to serve five days of community service on the charge of falsely reporting that his Centre Street apartment had been burglarized.

The defense lawyer hopes that a benefit concert for AIDS can be the service that the 44-year old Boy George can provide, but generally community service means picking trash off the side of the road, not singing "I'll Tumble 4 Ya".

Considering the 13 small bags of cocaine could have landed him a nice few years in prison, we'd say he got off pretty easily.
