Pete Doherty receives caution for assault charge

Babyshambles man won't face further charges for alleged attack

Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty has been given a caution for alleged assault charges.

The charges related to an alleged incident last August, when paparazzo Cath Mead claimed the star assaulted her.

After hounding Doherty and his then-girlfriend Irina Lazareanu in public for photographs, Mead claimed Doherty attacked her and damaged her camera equipment.


However, yesterday (January 21) police confirmed that Doherty would not be charged further, and that he has been given a conditional caution for criminal damage, reports Associated Press.
