IF IT'S NOT SMACK, IT'S BLOWS: Repaying the magistrate's trust in him, Pete Doherty used his evening pass from bail conditions to have a fight with Babyshambles guitarist Patrick Walden during the Brixton Academy gig.

The gig had got off to a bad start, with the crush of car-crash looky-loos and Shambles fans so heavy security stopped the gig to do a "move back" rotuine. A couple of songs later, according to the BBC, Doherty accidently unplugged Walden's guitar, leading to the fight. Bouncers separated the pair, but after a cooling off period, the band managed to get the end of their set without fighting each other any more. On stage.
