Babyshambles’ Patrick Walden jailed

The guitarist is held on remand following common assault charge

Babyshambles‘ guitarist Patrick Walden has been remanded in prison after being charged with common assault.

The on-off member of Pete Doherty’s band has been accused of assaulting his girlfriend at their north London home.

Walden pleaded not guilty to the common assault charge at Thames Magistrates court and will now be held on remand at Pentonville Prison until April 13, the Sunday Mirror reports.

As previously reported on NME.COM, the guitarist was believed to have quit Babyshambles after he didn’t appear with the band when they began their UK in January, but has since played occasional shows with the group.
