So a world-famous pop superstar and an undercover police officer go into a public restroom in a park in Beverly Hills and... Well, we'll let George Michael tell it (as he did soon afterward to MTV News): "I got followed into the restroom and then this cop—I didn't know it was a cop, obviously—he started playing this game, which I think is called, "I'll show you mine, you show me yours, and then when you show me yours, I'm going to nick you!'" Major embarrassment and hullabaloo ensued, of course. Michael was fined $800 and sentenced to 80 hours of community service. But he gets major props for making a truly fabulous video spoofing his own scandal later that year.
