Monday 28 November 2011
Entertainer Michael Barrymore has been charged with possession
of cocaine and being drunk and disorderly after an early morning
He was arrested with another man at 4.30am on Tuesday after a Citroen DS3 hit a kerb in Acton, west London.
Barrymore, 59, born Michael Parker, will appear at Ealing Magistrates Court on 7 December.
Police were unclear who was driving at the time of the incident. Both men have been bailed pending further inquiries.
Once one of Britain's highest-paid television stars, Barrymore's career foundered following the death of a man in his swimming pool in 2001.
