Pete Doherty arrested for suspected drunk driving

British police charged singer Pete Doherty with drunk driving, drug possession and driving without a valid license or insurance last Thursday.

The Gloucestershire Constabulary said officers arrested a 30-year-old man early Thursday after spotting a car driving erratically in Gloucester, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) west of London.

A police official speaking on condition of anonymity in line with departmental policy confirmed the man was Doherty, who played a concert in Gloucester on Wednesday.

Doherty’s manager Andy Boyd confirmed Doherty was in police custody and was due to appear in court Friday. He said he had no other details.

A 30-year-old woman was also detained but was later released without charge.

Doherty, a lead singer of Babyshambles and former boyfriend of model Kate Moss, has a long history of drug use.
