  1. does anyone else really hate that junkie pete doherty? that guy, and people like him are what give recreational drug users a bad name.

    He has been captured on video injecting passed out women with hayro, making his pet cat smoke crack, and just about every other horrible thing that has to do with drugs

    he's been in rehab god knows how many times, and has been arrested like 20 damn times. he's a waste of life in my book. His music is shit compared to when his band first came out

    here's a list of arrests and stuff from wiki, this dude is beyond needing help


    • 3 February - Doherty and another man were arrested for allegedly assaulting documentary film maker Max Carlish in an Islington hotel, in an incident apparently related to Carlish' intention to sell to the tabloid press photos showing Doherty smoking heroin.<sup id="_ref-CarlishAssault_0" class="reference">[1]</sup> Doherty claimed to be innocent, but had to spend 4 days in Pentonville Prison, as he was initially unable to raise £150,000 bail set by the judge on duty. Following a £50,000 payment from record company EMI and a £100,000 payment from his manager, he was released from custody.<sup id="_ref-BailRaised_0" class="reference">[2]</sup> Strict conditions were imposed on his release, including a night-time curfew for all reasons except drug rehabilitation, and an escort from a private security firm at all times.<sup id="_ref-Curfew_Tales_0" class="reference">[3]</sup> The charges of robbery and blackmail were later dropped due to "insufficient evidence."<sup id="_ref-ChargesDropped_0" class="reference">[4]</sup>
    • 22 February - The judge granted an exception to his bail conditions so that Doherty could perform a scheduled concert at the Brixton Academy with his band. During the concert a brief fistfight between Doherty and bandmate Patrick Walden took place on stage.<sup id="_ref-WaldenFight_0" class="reference">[5]</sup>
    • 2 July - At the Live 8 charity concert, Doherty performed 'Children of the Revolution' with Elton John who introduced him as one of the country's 'new talents'. The performance was poorly received by the audience; the sickly pale and bloated Doherty repeatedly forgot the song's lyrics, sang tunelessly and off-key, and stumbled around the stage seemingly in a stupor.
    • 13 August - Doherty was detained at the airport customs at Oslo Gardermoen Airport, when customs officers found a small amount of heroin among his possessions. His band was originally booked to play at the Oslo festival Øyafestivalen at 5:05 PM, but he remained in custody for three hours. He was released when the festival organisers paid the fine of 8000 NOK (693.118 GBP). The band appeared on stage later than scheduled and Doherty soon fell ill and vomited after being on stage for only 20 minutes. He threw out a bottle of Vodka to the audience, and showed them his empty cigarette package, followed by the crowd throwing cigarettes to him. Because of the electricity being shut down at 11 pm, they couldn't play for more than 30 minutes.<sup id="_ref-0" class="reference">[6]</sup>
    • 28 August - At Leeds Festival, Doherty attempted to assault Johnny Borrell, lead singer of fellow band Razorlight, but was subdued.<sup id="_ref-BorrellScrap_0" class="reference">[7]</sup>
    • 2 October - Following a sold-out gig at Shrewsbury Music Hall, police raided the band's tour bus, and Doherty was arrested for possession of Class A drugs and held overnight.

He was arrested because of an alleged possession of class A drugs, and taken to Ealing Broadway police station. He was released on bail under the provision to return in January 2006 for further inquiries.<sup id="_ref-DUIArrest_0" class="reference">[10]</sup>

Following his release from custody he was searched and re-arrested in London at 3:00pm for being under the influence of class A drugs.<sup id="_ref-ArrestedTwice_0" class="reference">[13]</sup> These arrests forced the postponement of several gigs, causing a riot among some of the fans present at the Newcastle show scheduled for that evening. Two people were arrested during the riot. The judge refused bail and Doherty was remanded in custody until 8 February, for sentencing.<sup id="_ref-NoBailJan06_0" class="reference">[14]</sup> The press speculated that he gave the judge the finger after being refused bail.<sup id="_ref-TheFinger_0" class="reference">[15]</sup>

    • 8 June - Doherty checks into rehab in Portugal to treat his ongoing addiction to heroin and crack cocaine, where he was scheduled to undergo rapid opiate detoxification under sedation and to receive a naltrexone anti-heroin implant.
