For a man who is arrested so often he gets arrested while at court a new issue with the law is not unusual. This time around, though, Pete Doherty has been arrested in connection to a suspected drug-related death. Considering this guy was found slumped over a toilet with a hypodermic needle in it on airplane, I can’t believe it wasn’t him.
The Babyshambles frontman, seen here playing at a private concert in Paris on March 8th, has been arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs that killed heiress Robin Whitehead who was working on a documentary about Doherty’s lifestyle and his relationship with Kate Moss.
On January 24th the heiress/filmmaker died of suspected overdose. Doherty visited her flat the day before the incident. Pete Wolf, the frontman for the band Wolfeman, who found Whitehead dead said she wasn’t doing any illegal substances, but later said she choked on her own vomit after downing alcohol and Valium. Wolfe bought a bag of heroin two days before the incident but says he smoked it in a different room. In addition suspicions of supplying the drugs, Wolfe and Doherty have been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
