Pete Doherty is set to appear in court tomorrow following his arrest on suspicion of drink-driving and drugs possession.

According to ITN the Babyshambles singer was arrested by police earlier this morning after being spotted driving 'erratically' around the streets of Gloucester. The singer had just finished playing a solo-gig in the South West city.

Local police have released a statement regarding the incident: "At approximately 12.30am officers on patrol in Eastgate Street saw a car being driven erratically. A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving, possession of drugs and failure to stop for police, he remains in custody at this time."
