NEW YORK, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- A New York judge Monday ordered British pop star Boy George to appear in court Feb. 1 for alleged drug possession and filing a fake police report.

The former Culture Club frontman returned to London after his Oct. 8 arraignment in New York, "Entertainment Tonight" reported.

Authorities said George O'Dowd, who had been working as a club DJ in the Big Apple, called police saying his loft had been burglarized. Police found cocaine in the residence and arrested the star.

Boy George was convicted of heroin possession in 1986 and subsequently entered a rehabilitation facility.
