MORE ON THE LATEST DOHERTY DISASTER: So, as we mentioned earlier, Pete's found himself in the cells again: more details of what he's gorn and done this time are emerging. The guy attacked was Max Carlish, who took the picture of Pete smoking heroin which cluttered around the tabloids last week.

Carlish is a film-maker, and had been making a film about Babyshambles. It could be argued, of course, that if you flog a photo of someone you're meant to be working with to the tabloids to get a few quid, you might expect there to be consequences, but Carlish doesn't seem to think there was any just cause:

"I'm feeling bloody battered, but I'm bowed and I feel sorry for Pete. My heart goes out to Pete, he has screwed up big time now.

"Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if in three weeks time he's hanging on the end of a rope in a jail cell somewhere. I do not want that to happen, so I'm not going to press charges.

"Pete may be thinking 'I can't stand Max now', but I still love Pete and I want the best for him.

"If that involves me giving him money so he can go into rehabilitation, the money I've earned from the Mirror and the people who are waving cheques in my face, then so be it."

Yes... that'll help: having helped toss an already ill man to the tabloid hyenas, you could then give him some of the cash you've made from helping to make the pressures on him even greater to get some vague sort of "help" - despite the clear desire on his part to reject any rehab he might be offered.

If he really said this, he deserves everything he got.
