Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty was released on bail today (Nov. 19) in London after he was arrested on suspicion of possessing crack cocaine, police said. The on-off boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss was arrested after he was spotted driving his car erratically near his east London home.
The 27-year-old musician and car’s other two occupants were arrested on suspicion of drug possession. All three men were released from Bethnal Green police station pending analysis of the substances recovered, said a Scotland Yard spokeswoman, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with force policy. They must report back to police in December.
The troubled singer’s battle with drug addiction has been lived in the public eye in the past two years via countless arrests. Earlier this month, Doherty was fined for assaulting a British Broadcasting Corp. reporter outside a London court.
