Pete Doherty rearrested

ROCK singer Pete Doherty was rearrested at court yesterday moments after he was spared jail with a fine for driving offences.

The 30-year-old Babyshambles singer escaped a prison sentence at Gloucester Crown Court after admitting careless and drink driving.

But after he was told to pay £2,050 (€2,300) in fines and banned from driving for 18 months, police officers escorted him from the court to a police station.

The county force later confirmed he had been arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug, but would not say what type.

Officers told Doherty of his arrest in the corridors of the Victorian court, and he was escorted down the steps where photographers were waiting.
