Good God Man!

NME Reports:


THE LIBERTINES' PETE DOHERTY has been arrested after coming back to the UK from Thailand. As previously reported, the guitarist flew out for a course of rehab at the Thamkrabok Monastery. However, Pete walked out after just a few days, and returned to the UK earlier in the week. It has now emerged that police pulled Pete for a suspected driving offence on Thursday (June 17), just hours after he arrived back in London. Pete was searched, and it's alleged police found a flick knife in his possession. As a result the guitarist was arrested and is due in court later this month where he'll face charges of possessing an offensive weapon, driving without a licence, insurance and driving dangerously. Doherty's trip to Thailand to clean up was the reason The Libertines pulled out of festival appearances in June.
