Controversial rock singer Pete Doherty spent last night in a jail cell after his latest run in with police.
The Babyshambles frontman, 27, was arrested after a car reported as stolen that he was travelling in fled police after being ordered to pull over in Hackney, east London.
A Metropolitan police spokesman confirmed that three men aged 22, 27 and 35 were arrested at 05:00 GMT yesterday, although no charges will be levied against Doherty.
The singer has become synonymous with court appearances and trouble with the law, gaining notoriety for his well-publicised heroin addiction and subsequent drug offence charges.
His arrest yesterday came hours after he told fans at a gig that he had no plans to marry supermodel girlfriend Kate Moss, despite rumours of a new year wedding in Thailand.
"I'm never getting married. I don't believe in it. Kate and I are in love - I worship her - but we're not going down the aisle. I'm happy the way it is," Doherty said.
