|Druggie Pete Doherty kicks a reporter!|
Pete Doherty seems determined to keep his title of Britain’s biggest bad boy. Earlier today, he kicked a reporter in the arm after pleading guilty to seven drug charges in London.
Doherty was in excess of one hour late to his court appearance, where he pleaded guilty to possessing heroin, crack cocaine and marijuana. The Babyshambles frontman and occasional boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss was caught with the drugs over two occasions - once in December and once in January. Last month, he was sentenced to 12-months of community service and regular drug tests.
As Pete left the courthouse, he kicked Trudi Barber, a reporter for BBC's Radio One station, knocking her microphone onto the ground. "It was total chaos here outside the court both when he arrived and when he left,” Barber reported to her station. "Afterwards he leapt over the railings outside the court. All of a sudden he lashed out, kicking me in the arm that was holding the microphone."
Meanwhile, Doherty doesn’t seem to have any inclination to quit using drugs, if a recent Rolling Stone interview with the singer is to be believed. Pete was interviewed by Mark Binelli for the magazine. Page Six received an excerpt of the interview, in which Binelli writes, "Over the next three hours, Doherty will also smoke crack, shoot heroin and take an 'ecstasy' pill. He does all of this casually, and openly, except for the shooting up, which he performs near the kitchenette, with his back to us."
