Pete Doherty Arrested After V Festival
Pete Doherty was arrested early this morning (Aug. 20) on suspicion of drugs possession, a police source said. Doherty, 28, was arrested with a man and a woman after being stopped in a car in Tower Hamlets in east London.
The troubled singer had been performing with his band Babyshambles at the V Festival in Staffordshire late on Sunday. All three were taken to an east London police station where they remain in custody.
Doherty was warned by a magistrate earlier this month he faced a prison sentence if he failed to demonstrate he was trying to kick his drugs habit. The singer pleaded guilty in July to possessing crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine.
