LONDON (AP) — [lastfm]George Michael[/lastfm] has regained his freedom.

The wayward singer was released from jail Monday after serving almost four weeks for driving under the influence of drugs.

Michael thanked those who had supported him while he was jailed and said outside his north London home: “I just want to start again.”

The former Wham! singer received an eight-week sentence on Sept. 14 for crashing his car into a London photo shop in July while high on prescription drugs and marijuana.

The judge ordered Michael to serve four weeks of the sentence in prison and the rest on parole.

The musician, whose hits include “Faith” and “Freedom,” also received a 1,250 pound (about $2,000) fine and lost his driver’s license for five years.
