Pete Doherty Got Released From Police Custody, Went To A Bar To Celebrate And Got Arrested Again For Fighting
Pete Doherty went out to celebrate his release from police custody for allegedly trying to buy cocaine, and he went home and did a lot of self-reflection and meditation to get to the root of his trauma. Just kidding, 40-year-old Pete immediately got into a fist fight with a 19-year-old and was arrested for violence by a person in a state of Pete Doherty (aka drunk). This story feels so Pete Doherty that it’s like Pete Doherty is trying to out Pete Doherty himself. Which Pete, honestly, a cocaine arrest is enough for the week. You’re in your 40s now.
According to The Guardian:
The Libertines and Babyshambles frontman was initially arrested in the Pigalle district in the early hours of Friday for allegedly attempting to buy cocaine. He spent two days in police custody and was provisionally fined the equivalent of £4,300, a sentence yet to be approved by a judge, the Mail reports.
Doherty, 40, reportedly went out on Sunday wearing his pyjamas to celebrate his release. He was allegedly seen fighting in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district with a 19-year-old male, who is believed to have filed a police complaint.
I’m actually most curious about the pajamas?! Who knew that Pete Doherty wore actual pajamas. You’d figure he just passed out in whatever he was wearing the night before. But now I’m picturing him in silk pajamas with some breathability to throw punches and enough pockets to hold his bad shit.
Pete’s lawyer claims this is just a case of Pete celebrating his freedom and said that people forced him to drink. Where was this lawyer when I was in college?!
Arash Derambarsh, a lawyer for Doherty, told the Mail: “[Pete wanted to] go and celebrate his liberation in a bar near him. He drank and people made him drink.”
The Libertines are due to start a European tour in Luxembourg on 17 November. Representatives for Doherty told the Guardian that his arrests should not affect the tour schedule.
I guess, good for Pete for not letting his foolishness interrupt his tour. Pete talked about how he needs money because he became an accidental father for the third time a few years ago. Plus his former BFF Macaulay Culkin has better things to do than keep bailing Pete’s messy ass out jail. And why do I have a feeling that the cops were alerted to Pete’s latest messiness by an anonymous tip…. from a hedgehog.
