New Yorkers were surprised to see British pop star Boy George sweeping the streets in New York. The former Culture Club singer was watched by an army of photographers whilst doing community service, his punishment for wasting police time after falsely reporting a burglary at his Manhattan apartment. Police arrived at the apartment to find no signs of a break-in but discovered cocaine. The drugs charges were dropped after George pleaded guilty to wasting police time and agreed to attend a drug rehabilitation programme in England. As photographers moved in for a closer shot of the flamboyant singer, he snapped that they were stopping him from doing his work. George certainly stood out with his bright orange jacket, wrap around sunglasses and trainers with no socks. Street cleaners never looked so good!
