Pete Doherty arrested

Pete Doherty has been arrested.

The Babyshambles frontman was taken into custody on suspicion of drug possession and driving under the influence in Gloucester, South West England.

The evening before , the 30-year-old musician had played a solo concert in front of 300 fans in the town's Guildhall.

Less than 30 minutes after the show finished, Doherty - who has battled crack cocaine and heroin addiction, but claims he has been "clean as a whistle" since he left rehab earlier this year - was in police custody.

A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said: "At approximately 12.30am officers on patrol in Eastgate Street saw a car being driven erratically, it continued down Barton Street and was stopped in Derby Road.

"A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving, possession of drugs and failure to stop for police. He remains in custody at this time."

Doherty was also arrested last Friday (05.06.09) after he was allegedly found slumped in a plane toilet with a hypodermic needle during a British Airways flight from London to Geneva.

Cabin crew spent 25 minutes trying to get Pete to leave the toilet. When he finally unlocked the door, onlookers claim the star was dazed and "obviously intoxicated".

Pete was arrested on arrival in Switzerland, where he was charged with an unspecified offence and ordered to pay a fine.

He was later released and allowed to play his scheduled concert at the Neuchatel Open Air music festival.

Pete's spokesman is yet to comment on either incident
