British entertainer Michael Barrymore has been charged with drug possession after he was involved in a car accident in the early hours of Tuesday.
The former beloved star, who enjoyed huge success hosting primetime TV shows in the U.K. in the 1990s, was arrested with another man after their car hit the curb in Acton, West London last week.

According to the BBC, police officers on routine patrol discovered the vehicle and charged Barrymore with possession of cocaine as well as being drunk and disorderly.

The two men were bailed and will appear at London’s Ealing Magistrates Court on 7 December.
