Doherty's Court No-Show
Troubled British rocker PETE DOHERTY has missed his scheduled court appearance today (12APR06) after being delayed in France. The singer was mysteriously held up in Paris after performing with his band BABYSHAMBLES in the French capital last night (11APR06). The 26-year-old had been ordered to attend Thames Magistrates Court in London for a review of his drug rehabilitation, after being slapped with a 12-month community order in February (06). Doherty was found guilty of seven counts of possessing controlled drugs. His case has been adjourned until next month (12MAY06), but Doherty will be back in court on 20 April over separate drug charges. Despite the rocker's no-show, a heavy police presence was on guard outside the courtrooms after Doherty's last appearance saw him kick a microphone out of a female reporter's hand amid scuffles with press and fans.
