Pete Doherty has been involved in a bloody fight with an Italian paparazzi photographer.

The incident reportedly took place after Babyshambles’ gig at the Piper Club in the Italian capital on Monday (October 23).

Doherty was left covered in blood after coming to blows with the unidentified snapper outside his hotel.

According to The Evening Standard, the singer allegedly jumped on the photographer and punched him several times before the two were dragged apart.

One witness said Doherty’s head was “dripping with blood” and that band members had grabbed metal ashtrays to use as weapons in the brawl.

Police were not called, but the photographer was said to have gone to hospital.
