    Default Human Cockroach Pete Doherty takes stash to court - arrest follows

    Pete Doherty arrested for taking drugs into court moments after avoiding prison sentence for drink-driving



    Rock singer Pete Doherty was arrested in a courthouse today moments after he was spared jail with a fine for driving offences.
    Police seized the 30-year-old Babshambles singer in the corridors at Gloucester Crown Court, where he was appearing on drink-drive and careless driving charges.

    But moments after avoiding a jail term - he was ordered to pay 2,050 in fines and banned from driving for 18 months - officers pounced and escorted him down the court steps to the police station across the road.

    Surprise: Pete Doherty is led away from court by police after just escaping a jail term for motoring offences. He looks as if he had ripped his trousers


    The police later confirmed he had been arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug - which he is believed to have dropped as he checked in at security.

    The bedraggled musician looked messy and appeared to have ripped his trousers.

    Minutes before the dramatic scene the court heard Kate Moss's former lover admit to careless driving on June 11 this year after playing a well-received gig to 300 fans at Guildhall.
    He also admitted to drink driving that night, having given a reading of 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath.
    Prosecutor Sarah Regan said the careless driving charge related to an 'erratic, sharp turn'.
    After a pursuit, Doherty stopped the Mercedes and swapped seats with passenger Daisy Whitbread in an apparent attempt to avoid punishment.
    The songwriter had already been disqualified from driving in 2007 and had not renewed his licence, the court heard.

    History: The singer is no stranger to the police and has 21 previous drug offences and six previous motoring offences

    Officers found one wrap of heroin in the car, worth up to 35, and what was described as 'home-made crack pipe' on the driver's seat.
    A search of Doherty's country home in Durley, near Marlborough, Wiltshire, uncovered a further 15 wraps worth around 350.
    Ms Regan said Doherty claimed to have offered to drive instead of his female companion who felt she was not fit to take the wheel.
    She added: 'Mr Doherty was pulled from the door and arrested. It was noted that he was extremely unsteady on his feet, his eyes were glazed and he smelt very strongly of alcohol, causing the officer to form the view he was drunk.'
    Ms Regan said Doherty had been driven to the gig by his manager but 'as he came out of the back of Guildhall where the car was waiting, there were lots of people waiting - including a number of photographers.'
    'Not wanting to be photographed with Ms Whitbread, Mr Doherty said that he just drove off as fast as he could. He saw the flashing lights of the police car behind him but didn't think that they were for him.
    'During the gig he said that he had been provided with half a bottle of rum when he went on stage and that it was probably empty when the gig finished.


    Arrival: Pete turned up for court and tried to hide from photographers behind his coat. He didn't have that luxury when he left court flanked by two police officers


    'However, although he admitted that he had probably had enough to drink to make him over the limit, he didn't think it would impair him in any way.'
    Doherty had earlier admitted to two counts of drugs possession, driving without a licence and without insurance, as part of the same episode.
    The judge was waiting until today's pleas were entered before dealing with all the offences together.
    The court heard Doherty had 21 previous drug offences and six previous motoring offences. He had no convictions for drink driving.
    Doherty's defence barrister Peter Ratliff asked for a financial penalty, which Judge Martin Picton said was 'proportionate to the offence'.
    A Gloucestershire Constabulary spokeswoman said: 'A 30-year-old Wiltshire man has been arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled substance. He is currently assisting police with their inquiries.'


    Pete Doherty arrested over drugs moments after escaping jail for driving offences | Mail Online

    With the loss of Brittany Murphy some people have been wondering how others such as Li-Lo, Pete and Amy Winehouse still keep on going. I think this article provides the answer: They are too fucking stupid to die! Seriously, I bet morons like Pete Doherty could be dead for months before the message filtered through all the chemicals to their smack-embalmed brains and they finally keel over. Being dumb enough to take your drugs to a Court hearing with you definately suggests that to me, anyway.

    ^ Haha. He probably thinks they're taking him to the nearest crackhouse for his next hit.

    What a douche. He looks like he's split the front of his trousers at the crotch too.

    Oh god! He definitely looks like a human cockroach, that's for sure! He needs some new pants and a shower.

    Boy Darkbutt is going to be so busy. So many jobs, so little time.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    I say more power to him. If they're not going to put him away, then let him smoke or snort or shoot or eat up whatever he wants. So what if he drives while fucked up or shoots blood all over strangers. It's all good.

    Heh. That makes me laugh. (It also reminds me of the general level of intelligence of some of my clients.... )
