Pete Doherty Arrested Again

Published: 2005-10-03
Luckless ex-Libertine and current Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty was arrested Saturday and interviewed by police in connection with a drug operation undertaken in the UK town where his band had performed that night.

Following the Babyshambles show at Shrewsbury's Main Hall on Saturday night, police conducted a raid of the venue, resulting in two drug possession arrests. Doherty, who has a long history of drug abuse, was also arrested and taken to nearby Telford police station where he was questioned and detained for nearly 12 hours before being released on bail.

"It's just some sort of mistake, that's all," protested Doherty upon release, going on to claim that an implant in his lower abdomen designed to curtail his drug use was mistaken by police as "the hard stuff."

The West Mercia Police department responsible for Doherty's arrest have since issued the following statement:

"A man (Doherty) has now been interviewed by police in connection with the operation overnight and he has now been released on police bail pending further enquires (sic). He has been bailed to a date in December at which time he will have to return and answer his bail."

Babyshambles were forced to cancel a show scheduled for Sunday but a band spokesperson declared that their current UK tour "will continue as normal."
