Pete Doherty arrested second time in one week following ‘drunken fight’ in Paris

British rock singer Pete Doherty has been arrested for the second time this week while in Paris.

The 40-year-old Libertines star was arrested following a "drunken fight" while he was out "celebrating his release".

At the time of the alleged altercation, Doherty was reportedly wearing his pyjamas.

According to reports, on Sunday morning he was spotted throwing punches at a teenage adversary in the upmarket Saint-Germain-des-Pres district of the French capital.

On Saturday, he had been released from custody after being held for alleged cocaine abuse in a separate incident.

His lawyer, Arash Derambarsh, told the Parisien news outlet that Pete went home and took sleeping pills but then went out again wearing his pijamas.

According to Derambarsh, Doherty wanted to "go and celebrate his liberation in a bar near him."

He continued: "He drank and people made him drink."

As the evening wore on, the reports say Doherty got into a fight with a 19-year-old man and they "quickly came to blows".

An investigating source has said the teen was "injured" during the "drunken brawl", and that Pete could face fresh charges for "violence by a person in a state of drunkenness".

"Before being questioned by police, Doherty was put somewhere where he could sober up," said an investigating source.

Before his latest arrest, Doherty had been released following two days in police custody for buying cocaine in the northern Pigalle district of Paris.

Under a fast-track procedure, he was provisionally fined the equivalent of £4,300 for using a banned drug – a sentence which is yet to be approved by a judge.

In Pigalle, Doherty was arrested during an alleged street drug deal witnessed by police.

The star was again said to be drunk and in possession of cocaine when approached by officers at around 3am.

"The suspect was arrested in the Pigalle district, and was carrying two grammes of cocaine," said an investigating source.
