Estranged LIBERTINES co-frontman PETE DOHERTY has been arrested for burglary.

Pete was arrested on Friday night (July 25) after allegedly entering a basement flat in central London. He made a brief appearance in Horseferry Magistrates Court today where he was bailed until August 11.

In June Pete failed to turn up for a European tour, and has not performed with the group since.

The band’s new single ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’ - featuring the full line-up - is due to be released on August 18.

He has a track record of theft, previously he stole riffs from 70s punk rock bands !

PETE DOHERTY, is he one that - it has been said - looks like a fat faced teenage girl crossed with an Owl?

a fat-faced teenage girl crossed with a pekingnese would be my take on it, but yeah, that's him.

The Libertines are the most exciting kick ass band in many a moon and have restored my faith in rock and roll to be unpredictable, compulsive and really fucking exciting and I love "Up the Bracket" (the album) sooo much. I just think they are brill, brill, brill.

Hey, awesome, someone else here who isn't afraid to like the Liberti- oh hell.

Martian, I dig you and your mass-pop-consumption/release date hookup ways, but I'm going on a search rite now for that "use other jokes please" thread

JtN and I like the Libertines, or at least we did until two posts ago.

My social network question now has interesting ramifications!

one year passes...
Pete Doherty appears at Bow Road magistrates' court later today after being 'too ill' to turn up last week.

Apparently the spin put on it is that he was arrested after the police found a flick knife in his car and charged with possession of a concealed weapon, whereas he was actually caught driving without insurance, which is far less - but probably more - rock 'n' roll.

Will it be a fine/conviction/community service/let off/failure to turn up/tonnes of publicity? The 'build-up' starts here...
