Doherty 'Chased Out Of Slovakia'
Troubled rocker PETE DOHERTY and his band BABYSHAMBLES were ejected from a Slovakian music festival on Saturday (01JUL06) after playing their scheduled slot, because local authorities refused to have them on site any longer than necessary. The KILLAMANGIRO star claims he and his bandmates were "chased" out of the Topvar festival, causing him to rip his trousers - but he managed to find a skirt which he wore to save his blushes. He says, "We were playing at some festival in Slovakia and had to leave very quickly. "There were a lot of police about and some big security men sort of chased us out of town. "I ripped my trousers which is why I'm wearing a skirt."
