Pete Doherty has been charged with possession of heroin after being arrested just moments after a court appearance yesterday (December 21).

The Babyshambles frontman avoided jail for a driving office, but was then re-arrested by police for possessing a controlled substance.

A spokesperson for the Gloucestershire Constabulary has since confirmed to NME.COM that Doherty has been charged again.

"The 30-year-old from Wiltshire who was arrested in Gloucester yesterday has been charged with possession of heroin and has been bailed to appear at Gloucester Magistrates court in January 2010," they explained.

Meanwhile, Babyshambles have announced a last minute gig in London tonight (December 22).
