In a statement, Michael said, "I'm coming out here on my own so that you realize I'm going to start again."

The Faith singer, who had been put behind bars for driving under the influence, received an 8-week sentence back on September 14th.

In July, Michael, 47, had crashed his car into a London photo shop while under the influence of pot and prescription drugs.

The judge has allowed the singer to spend the rest of his sentence on parole. In addition, Michael was given a $2000 fine and will not be able to obtain a license for five years.
