[Rock] Libertines Guitarist No-Shows Court

Troubled Libertines guitarist Pete Doherty failed to show for a scheduled court appearance today at Thames Magistrate Court on charges of posession of an offensive weapon.

According to his publicist, Doherty was suffering from a bad case of gastroenteritis and was unable to make the court date.

His hearing has been rescheduled for next week.

Doherty has been no-showing scheduled solo appearances lately; he’s had a history of conflicts with both the law and other members of his band.
