Pete Doherty Kicks Photographer In The Head

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.
