Pop singer George Michael was arrested for investigation of engaging in lewd conduct in a park restroom, police said Thursday.

Michael was arrested shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday outside Will Rogers Park after an undercover officer on a crime suppression detail allegedly saw him engaging in a lewd act, Lt. Edward Kreins said at a news conference."I can't go into details of the lewd act," Kreins said. The singer was alone at the time, Kreins said.

The British-born Michael gave police his real name, Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, and then supplied his stage name when asked if he used any other names, Kreins said.

Michael was scheduled for arraignment in Municipal Court on May 5.
