Doherty Gets 14 Weeks

Pete Doherty of Babyshambles performs at Evening News Arena on November 22, 2007 in Manchester, England.

I don’t care about this fella at all but perhaps you do:

LONDON, England (AP) — Rock musician Pete Doherty has been sentenced to 14 weeks in jail for violating a probation order…. Parlophone Records did not say how Doherty broke his probation. But music magazine NME cited a court spokesman as saying Doherty had used different kinds of drugs, breached “time keeping,” and generally not complied with his probation.

“Generally not complied” carries a lot of weight, right? I also like that he tried different sorts of drugs. They say variety is the spice of life and such.

  • What does it say on his neck? If he survives his addictions this man will have some stories to tell in a few decades.

  • this man is a complete waste of oxygen.
    forget jail, they should have him hung and do everyone a favour.

  • If you don’t care about him, why did you publish this post? You’re in love with him. Anyone who believes the myth that drugs are evil and death-bringing must regard this mere exhibitionist to be a magical immortal creature defying his fate at every turn.
