Pete Doherty fined for heroin possession

Pete Doherty has been fined £750 for possession of four grams of heroin during his appearance at Gloucester Crown Court on dangerous driving charges back in December.

Security guards at the court discovered 13 wraps of heroin in the the Babyshambles singer's jacket after asking him to empty his pockets before the hearing.

Judge Joti Bopa Rai suggested that Doherty purposely brought the drugs to court in an attempt to gain publicity. However, the singer's lawyer Bruce Clark denied these claims.

The court also noted that Doherty had failed to pay the original £2,210 imposed on him on December 21 for driving charges.
