Pete: It wasn't my fought

Pete Doherty denies he started the fist fight with the photographer in Rome: he reckons it was the it was the photographer's actions which precipitated the fracas:

A spokesperson for Doherty released a statement saying: "Pete Doherty totally denies that he instigated a fight with a photographer in Rome.

"Reports that the photographer might make an official complaint will certainly interest Pete's lawyers, who can call on witnesses who clearly saw Pete being hit with a camera outside his hotel."

The idea of a photographer using his camera as a weapon seems somewhat unlikely - they generally treat their cameras as more precious than a baby with an especially wobbly head - although it may, of course, have been an accidental knock.
