Troubled British rocker Pete Doherty has been arrested again - on suspicion of stealing a car and possessing class A drugs.

The Babyshambles frontman, who earlier this month (FEB06) appeared in court in London for drug-related offences, is thought to be one of three men held by police in Birmingham, England, for stealing a car in the capital.

Doherty and two teenagers from Scotland were also arrested for allegedly possessing class A drugs.

The singer, who previously romanced supermodel Kate Moss, was slapped with 13 nights in prison in January (06) and ordered to attend a drug rehabilitation programme following his February conviction on seven drug counts.

The judge warned he could face further time behind bars should he break his community service order.
