Pete Doherty

In a story as old as time itself, Pete Doherty plead guilty to possession of crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine as well as to two driving offences. Two and a half hours late for court, a judge had issued a warrant for the Babyshambles singer’s arrest before he showed, but Pete managed to escape jail when the judge offered him a choice between rehab or incarceration.

He was told: “If you go to this place to have detox and take advantage of it then we will see what sentence is appropriate when you next come. But if you do not I can tell you now that you will go into custody.”

They must really love this guy in England. Judges there probably have posters of his ass up on their closet doors and give it a little peck before they go to sleep. They probably giggle into their blankets thinking about changing their last name to Doherty. Jesus, not even Houdini escaped danger this many times.
