Only hours after arriving back in the UK, Doherty has a run-in with police...
THE LIBERTINES’ PETE DOHERTY has been arrested after coming back to the UK from Thailand.
As previously reported, the guitarist flew out for a course of rehab at the Thamkrabok Monastery. However, Pete walked out after just a few days, and returned to the UK earlier in the week.
It has now emerged that police pulled Pete for a suspected driving offence on Thursday (June 17), just hours after he arrived back in London.
Pete was searched, and it’s alleged police found a flick knife in his possession. As a result the guitarist was arrested and is due in court later this month where he’ll face the charge of possessing an offensive weapon.
Doherty’s trip to Thailand to clean up was the reason The Libertines pulled out of festival appearances in June.
