Mad Rocker Pete Doherty has been arrested after breaking into a record shop in the Bavarian town of Regensburg in Germany.
The former Libertines & Babyshambles frontman was caught stealing a bundle of records and also a guitar. An eye-witness identified the singer at the scene. 'That's definitely Pete Doherty,' she said.
Local Police would only confirm that they had indeed questioned a famous person about a possible break in at a local record shop but didn't really know who he was because most German Police have quite terrible taste in music, preferring The Scorpions and David Hasselhoff.
Doherty's lawyer, Annie Justice issued the following statement to the gathered press.
'It was indeed Pete who was breaking into the record shop. He was trying to remove all the McFly CD's from the main display and replace them with his own album. It's out on Monday everyone by the way.
'You know as well as Pete does, any incidents like this boost sales.
'We're not sure why he took the guitar because he can't play a bloody note. It looks good as a prop though when he's walking round being moody.'
Pete was bundled into a waiting Police car for further questioning and fell asleep.
