Pete Doherty Charged With Driving Offences

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007 at 09:39 by Matt Rhodes

One man walking disaster zone Pete Doherty has been charged with four driving offences following his arrest in November last year. The charges, which are somewhat of a full house in the motoring world, are:

  • Failing to produce driving documents
  • Driving with no insurance
  • Driving with no MOT
  • Failing to comply with driving license conditions

He was bailed and is due to appear at Thames Magistrates’ Court on 13th February.

The two other occupants of the car who were arrested alongside Doherty have also been charged. Michelle Breeze, a retail manager from South London, and Peter Wolfe, a songwriter from Kent, were charged with possession of heroin and cocaine respectively.

Doherty is the troubled frontman of Babyshambles and first rose to fame with London based band The Libertines. The latter ending in a rather public and bitter feud with co-founder Carl Borat.

Pete has had a number of problems with drugs and his relationship with supermodel Kate Moss had the tabloids foaming at the mouth throughout most of last year. In January this year he was ordered to take part in a drug treatment programme after admitting to drug possession in April 2006.

At only 27 Pete is idolised by his fans even though his live performances range from the sublime to the ridiculous. (His duet with Elton John at Live8 anyone?). Sometimes he doesn’t even turn up and when he does he has been known to vomit on stage.

Whether or not he is a genius songwriter or a big fat waste of space is yet to be decided, but anyone who can stick the nut on Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell (as he did last year) is alright by me.
