Pete Doherty arrested in Berlin
Oh, that Peter Doherty, can’t he just keep himself out of trouble? I seem to manage it alright, and I’m a man of a similar age to him. How come I don’t take drugs and sing Nazi anthems accidentally and get arrested all the time like he does? It just doesn’t make any sense, does it?
Anyway, Pete Doherty has been arrested in Berlin after apparently throwing a drink at a car. Doherty was celebrating the end of his German tour with two friends by being all rowdy in a bar and, at around 7am, threw a glass out of an open window towards a parked car.
The barman at the bar, Trinkteufel (which translates as ‘Drink Devil’), who is apparently called Banana, though that might not be his real name, told the Bild newspaper: “The three of them had just come from Wiener Straße. There they’d been tossed out of a bar. I almost threw Pete out, too. He was drinking shots and constantly asking about cocaine”.
Doherty was held by police for three hours, before being charged with property damage and released. I hope he’s learned his lesson. I’m sure he has.
