Doherty: 'I Didn't Take Drugs On Plane'
LATEST: Pete Doherty has attacked claims he injected drugs on a flight from London to Spain, insisting the airline lied about finding a bloody syringe. The Babyshambles frontman was detained onboard the Easyjet flight to Barcelona on Thursday (1JUN06) and subjected to a humiliating internal body cavity search when he arrived at the city. Easyjet later claimed cabin crew had found a syringe hidden in a toilet cubicle after he had used it and banned him from using the airline again. But Doherty claims no syringe exists and the fact he was released without charge proves his innocence. He says, "When I came out (the toilet), they shut the door and locked it and got a big f**king luminous sign up saying 'hazardous area'. They stopped people using the toilet." "If they found a syringe, they can produce it in court. "We got off the plane and we all got the rubber glove treatment. They wanted to see if we had anything in our bottoms. "The police searched me and then half-heartedly searched a few other people and then said, 'Enjoy the concert and enjoy your stay.' "They sent us on our merry way - most peculiar."
