Pete Doherty arrested for second time in a day

Newcastle gig is postponed

Pete Doherty has been arrested for the second time today (January 26).

The Babyshambles singer was stopped by police in London's Whitechapel this afternoon who searched him, and found what they suspected to be a Class A drug.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told NME.COM: "At 15.05, officers on foot stopped and spoke with a 26 year old man in the street in Whitechapel, E1. The officers were concerned he was under of influence of drugs and a subsequent search of him led to the recovery of a substance believed to be a Class A drug."

He added: "He was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs and is currently in custody at an east London police station."

Doherty had only been out of custody a matter of hours following an earlier arrest.

Babyshambles were due to continue their UK tour tonight at Newcastle University (January 26) but as Doherty is now unable to make it in time the show has been postponed.
