Pete Doherty: No Munchen go-back

Pete Doherty was supposed to be playing Munich last night, but the gig was pulled.

Could this be anything to do with the still-unsettled story about the German record-shop break-in, and the police cars sitting outside the venue in Munich keen to have a word.

Doherty had got as far as turning up and getting his guitar out, when it sounds like the police heard he was in town, and then he heard that they'd heard. Backstage worker Hans-Georg Stocker told the Suddeutsche Zeitung:

"At some point, he's jumped into a taxi and disappeared."
One step ahead of the law. For now, Pete. For now.
