The World

July 13, 1986

British singer Boy George, a pioneer in the rock world trend of androgynous chic, was arrested and charged with heroin possession, police said. Nearly 12 hours after taking him in, Scotland Yard released the 25-year-old pop star on unspecified bail and ordered him to appear before a London magistrate July 29. Boy George, who is said to be undergoing treatment for heroin addiction, left Harrow police station in north London in a chauffeur-driven car with a police escort, smiling and waving. George's friend Marilyn, also a pop singer who sports the transvestite look, was arrested on drug charges earlier in the week and released pending further hearings.
