Pete Doherty Kicks Photographer In The Head

March 24th, 2006 // 7 Comments

Apparently playfully. Such a sweet guy. He also almost backed over a pedestrian as he sped away from the courthouse.

Rock singer Pete Doherty pleaded guilty on Thursday to seven charges of possessing heroin, crack cocaine and cannabis in a court appearance in east London.

Sentencing was delayed till April 20 for the 26-year-old Babyshambles singer over the offences which took place in December and January.

Only last month Doherty, who found fame as a sometime boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss, escaped a jail term for separate drugs charges.

Doherty, who had arrived late for his appearance at Thames Magistrates Court, caused chaos after the hearing as he made his way through a 50-strong crowd of photographers, reporters and fans.

Climbing over a wall outside the court, he kicked a reporter’s microphone and then playfully kicked at a photographer. Wearing his trademark trilby hat and a grey suit, Doherty climbed over the boot of his waiting Jaguar before getting behind the wheel, almost knocking over a passer-by as he reversed and sped away.

    This guy is such a loser. I don’t even know why attention is paid to him. It is not entertaining, just sad.

    When is this idiot going to either a) overdose and save us from his idiocy or b) end up in jail and become somebody’s playtoy?

    Why is he famous again?

    Watching Pete Doherty is like watching a time-loop of a train wreck. Not only do you see constant self-destruction, but it’s apparently going to last forever.

    Why is it everytime he goes to court to announce that today is the first day etc, he immediately (literally in this case) does something moronic?

    Las, to answer your question……….because he is a MORON! Is it wrong to wish death on someone just so you don’t have to hear about him anymore?

    He’s gonna die anyway, so I doubt wishing would make any difference. :)

    How can he even kick, with all the drugs he does?

    pete is not only a indie god, but a talented poet,a musical genius and extremely charismatic. i mean come on the lad went to oxford university. Have any of you even listened to his music, no wonder no one takes him seriously if the only thing hes reconginsed for is his bad points…theres a lot of them i agree but this man is deeply moving and his lyrics touch the heart..give him a break hes only human.
