With a city-issued broom in his hand, Boy George started his court-ordered community service early Monday, sweeping the streets of New York City for the Department of Sanitation and getting in a dust-up with the media.
It took less than an hour for the former Culture Club frontman to get into a spat with the media.
"You think you're better than me?" he yelled. "Go home. Let me do my community service."
The singer, born George O'Dowd, was ordered to spend five days working for the Department of Sanitation after pleading guilty in March to falsely reporting a burglary at his lower Manhattan apartment. The officers who responded found cocaine instead.
