Pete Doherty suspected of drunken driving


LONDON -- British police on Thursday charged singer Pete Doherty with drunken driving, drug possession and driving without a valid license or insurance.

The Gloucestershire Constabulary said officers arrested a 30-year-old man early Thursday after spotting a car driving erratically in Gloucester, about 100 miles west of London.

A police official speaking on condition of anonymity in line with departmental policy confirmed the man was Doherty, who played a concert in Gloucester on Wednesday.

Doherty's manager Andy Boyd confirmed Doherty was in police custody and was due to appear in court Friday. He said he had no other details.

A 30-year-old woman also was detained but was released without charge.

Doherty, a lead singer of Babyshambles and former boyfriend of model Kate Moss, has a long history of drug use.
