Pete Doherty steals cars, goes free

Just days after trying to smash a guitar over a photographer’s face, Pete Doherty was arrested and released over the weekend after being spotted in a car that was reported stolen. The arrest came when he fled from police just hours after telling fans at a gig, “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.”

Pete Doherty is like the damn Hamburgler. For some reason because he has an oblong head nobody seems to care when he steals cars or tries to murder people with his guitar. Instead he gets a slap on the wrist, everybody has a good chuckle, and then he’s set free to pull off his next mini caper. I’m always surprised to see pictures of him as a real person, because I always think he’ll photograph as a 2D cartoon character.
