The post The Libertines’ Pete Doherty arrested for cocaine possession appeared first on Consequence of Sound.
According to the French publication Le Point, police officers approached Doherty after witnessing the transaction firsthand. They found him in possession of two grams of cocaine, and he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of his arrest.
Doherty was “placed in detention” and faces drug-related charges.
The 40-year-old singer has long struggled with addiction and has been repeatedly arrested for drug possession and incidents arising from his drug use.
The Libertines are scheduled to kick off a European tour later this month. It remains to be seen how Doherty’s latest arrest alters these plans, if at all.
Update – November 11th: Doherty has been arrested for a second time, this time after getting into a drunken brawl.
