Doherty Mayhem Outside Court
And the Shambles fail to show at Koko gig
Pete Doherty caused chaos when he left court yesterday after pleading guilty to possession of heroin, crack and cannabis.
As he barged through the 50-strong crowd of paparazzi and reporters outside Thames Magistrates Court in east London he climbed onto a wall, kicked a reporters microphone and aimed another kick at a photographer. He then clambered over the boot of his Jaguar to get to the driving seat and nearly knocked over a passer-by as he sped off.
Doherty turned up to the court two hours late clad in his trademark trilby and grey suit. After he pleaded guilty to the drugs offences from December and January the magistrates delayed sentencing until April 20.
To make matters worse, Babyshambles were due to play a gig at Camden venue Koko lat night but failed to show. Early reports suggest the gig was cancelled after a band member received some bad news and suddenly had to fly to Tenerife.
