Pete Doherty drugs case adjourned

Babyshambles star must return to court later this month

Pete Doherty’s trial for drug possession has been adjourned for two weeks.

The Babyshambles singer who was facing seven charges of possessing drugs at London’s Thames Magistrates Court today (March 9) was released on unconditional bail until March 23.

The trial was adjourned after interview tapes relating to the case were unavailable in court and a series of statements were also missing.

Doherty’s solicitor Sean Curran also asked for an adjournment to clarify two incidents relating to the case.

Arriving in court over two hours late, Doherty is facing two charges of possessing heroin, two of crack cocaine and three of cannabis, dating from December 18 and January 14.

Earlier the singer pulled up outside of court in a gold Jaguar and struggled to pass through the assembled media as he made his way into the building.

Following his hearing, Doherty ran to his car parked down a side street chased by fans and photographers, before he scrawled on the window in a marker pen ‘I love Kate 4 eva’ in reference to former girlfriend, Kate Moss.

He also added ‘QPR’ in tribute to his football team, Queens Park Rangers.
