Pete Doherty has been arrested - moments after leaving a court hearing today (21.12.09).

The 30-year-old Babyshambles singer was escorted from Gloucester Crown Court to a local police station by officers on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance.

A spokeswoman for Gloucestershire Constabulary confirmed: "A 30-year-old Wiltshire man has been arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled substance. He is currently assisting police with their inquiries."

It has not been revealed what substance he was believed to have been in possession of when he was arrested.

Earlier, Pete had pleaded guilty to careless and drink driving charges and received a £2,050 fine and an 18-month driving ban, despite having already been banned from driving in 2007 and never renewing his license.

The charges related to an arrest in June, when he was caught driving away from a concert after consuming more than half a bottle of rum on stage.

The court heard the rocker had 21 previous drug offences and six previous motoring offences. He had no convictions for driving.
