PETE DOHERTY NOW BEING ARRESTED MORE THAN WE CAN KEEP UP WITH

Bloody hell - they could at least give us a chance to do a flash on Pete Doherty being arrested the first time before they pick him up again.

Tonight's planned date at Newcastle has been axed as Pete got arrested twice in about twelve hours.

Last night's Leeds gig didn't happen as Doherty didn't turn up; at 5.40 this morning he was stopped driving wobbily up and down Laburnum Street in London. He was arrested for possession of class A drugs; and released sometime later on in the morning.

Since it's unlikely he wasn't given the stuff back by the cops, he must have made a beeline for a dealer, as he was stopped again - this time in Whitechapel - at five past three this afternoon. He was arrested again.

There are people who think that his meeting with The General in Pentonville and the subsequent track on the album is amongst the best work Babyshambles has ever done. It looks like Pete is going to get a lot of time to interview talent for the second album at this rate.
