Pete Doherty misses court appearance

The Babyshambles singer is stuck in Paris

Pete Doherty failed to turn up for a court appearance in London this morning (April 12).

The Babyshambles singer was delayed for a review of his 12-month community order at Thames Magistrates Court in east London following the band’s first European gig of 2006 in France last night.

The court heard that he was stuck in Paris at the time of the hearing, reports the BBC.

He will appear on separate drugs charges on April 20.
