Babyshambles Crash Drama
The papers say Doherty is a hero on his way to V Festival but MTV News has the real story.
Pete Dohertys group Babyshambles were four hours late for their V Festival Staffordshire set but (for once) had a legitimate excuse!
The Kilimanjaro group were held up in traffic on the way to the site after a car crash.
The Mirror newspaper even claims that Pete and the band pulled a man from the wreckage.
According to the tab: They saw the overturned car billowing with smoke in the middle of the carriageway. They stopped and pulled a guy in his 50s from the vehicle.
But our sources say the bands journey was less rock and roll. A label spokesman told MTV NEWS: The band was delayed by traffic and so couldnt make the allotted time.
However, they contacted the organisers on the way to the site and were able to reschedule for a later slot.
Wed love to believe that Doherty really is a saviour but this sounds a too far fetched even for the crazy Babyshambles frontman!
