PETE DOHERTY TO SPEND WEEKEND BEHIND BARS

The star can't raise his bail...

PETE DOHERTY will have to spend the weekend in jail because he could not come up with £150,000 bond money for his bail on time.

The ex-Libertines singer had been granted bail with curfew restrictions at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on charges of robbery and blackmail.

The star’s lawyer said the money could not be raised on time, reports the BBC.

Doherty, 25, was arrested following an alleged incident in a London hotel on Wednesday night (February 2).

Musician Alan Wass, 23, also of north London, appeared in court accused of the same offences.

Magistrates imposed a range of bail conditions on Doherty including a curfew between 2200 and 0700, except when he attends a drug rehabilitation centre. He was told he would not be able to leave his home without being accompanied by a security firm.

The star must also surrender his passport and report daily to a local police station.

Doherty was arrested after police were called to an Islington hotel in response to claims that a man had been assaulted.

A man in his thirties was later taken to University College Hospital, London, with facial injuries, before being discharged.

A lawyer representing Doherty and Wass said outside court the pair strenuously denied the charges.
