Doherty Arrested Over Pal's Death

British rocker PETE DOHERTY has been arrested on suspicion of supplying the drugs which allegedly killed his filmmaker friend ROBYN WHITEHEAD in January (10).
Whitehead, a member of the Goldsmith dynasty, was discovered dead at an east London apartment by Doherty's musician friend Peter Wolfe, who lives at the property.
The 27 year old died of a suspected drug overdose, although a post mortem examination was inconclusive and officials are awaiting the results of toxicology tests before they can determine the cause of death.
The Babyshambles frontman was reportedly arrested after attending a police station by appointment.
Wolfe and the apartment's owner Gill Samworth were also held on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice, while 28-year-old musician Alan Wass was also taken in on suspicion of supplying drugs, reports Britain's The Sun.
All four have been bailed to return in April (10).
A source tells the newspaper, "Pete's adamant he played no part in Robin's death. He is still very distressed."
