Doherty Arrested Over Plane Drama

BABYSHAMBLES star PETE DOHERTY has been arrested at an airport in Switzerland after he was suspected of taking drugs in an airplane toilet.
The singer was flying from London to Geneva, Switzerland on Friday (05Jun09) ahead of a planned concert in the country.
But cabin crew on the British Airways flight became concerned when they allegedly found the star slumped in the aircraft's lavatory.
He was believed to be intoxicated and was returned to his seat, but flight staff alerted police when a hypodermic needle was later found on the plane.
Doherty, who has been battling addictions to heroin and crack cocaine for more than five years, was arrested and questioned by cops when the plane touched down at Geneva airport.
The former Libertines frontman was charged with an unspecified offence and handed a fine before being released later that day (05Jun09). He went on to perform as scheduled at the Neuchatel Open Air Festival.
A spokesman for Geneva police says, "We were contacted by the captain of a BA flight and a passenger was controlled by the police. He was charged but I cannot say what with. He paid a fine and was allowed to go."
