Doherty charged in new drugs probe
Singer Pete Doherty has been charged with dangerous driving, drink-driving, possession of a Class A drug and driving without a licence or insurance.
The 30-year-old Babyshambles and ex-Libertines singer was stopped on Wednesday night in Gloucester after officers spotted a car "being driven erratically".
Doherty, a former boyfriend of model Kate Moss, was arrested in Derby Road, off Barton Street, less than half an hour after he finished a show at the city's Guildhall.
The incident came after the singer had reportedly charmed an audience of 300 with an intimate acoustic set.
His latest solo album Grace/Wastelands was attributed to Peter Doherty, rather than Pete, which critics saw as a sign of growing maturity. THE ECHO
