Pete Doherty fined for breaking camera

Babyshambles man ordered to pay damages

Pete Doherty has been ordered to pay a £912 fine for damaging a camera belonging to photographer Catherine Mead, it was ruled today (July 24).

The judgement was made at Yoevil Magistrates Court, and related to an incident in August 2007.

Doherty was accused of damaging Mead‘s camera after she had followed him and his then-girlfriend, Irina Lazareanu, around the town of Crewkerne – repeatedly taking photographs of them without asking permission.

Doherty had pleaded guilty to criminal damage, reports AP.

Magistrates said that there was a “degree of provocation” from Mead before the incident.
