There's complications with the star's bail payment...

PETE DOHERTY will have to spend another night behind bars amid complications with his bail payment.

Doherty has been in Pentonville Prison all weekend, and was widely expected to be released today (February 7) on £150,000 bail.

However, it has emerged that the earliest he will now be out will be tomorrow (February 8).


Last week, the ex-Libertines was granted bail with curfew restrictions at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court after being charged with robbery and blackmail.

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 10pm and 7am, 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 the pair strenuously deny the charges.
