Has Pete finally cracked it?

After what seems like hundreds of missed court appearances, rehab stints and promises to stay clean, Pete Doherty may have finally cracked it – this time supported by the long arm of the law.

Young Peter was to have stayed under drug supervision, taking regular tests, for a further six months, but District Judge Jane McIvor has released him early because of good behaviour. However, Pete’s yet to be sentenced for driving while in possession of lots and lots of drugs last May, so he may still go down (although we’ve all seen his amazing –some might say Artful – talent for dodging jail).

Pete said outside the court after the hearing: "I'm quite proud, but this is just the beginning. My life has changed. I'm still a bit wobbly but I'm taking one day at a time."
