Pete Doherty is two days into a 14-week jail sentence for arriving late to a probation session. Or more specifically (according to West London Magistrates' Court), Doherty was imprisoned for a "breach of time-keeping, non-compliance of his order and using different drugs."
Doherty's post-Libertines band, Babyshambles, is sticking by the singer, however. In an interview with BBC 6 Music, drummer Adam Ficek said, "He's had lots of chances, he's going to find it really difficult in there. All I can say is that the band are going to stick with him as always."
Doherty's sentence has forced him to postpone a solo show at the Royal Albert Hall on April 26. If he serves the entire 14 weeks, he'll also miss an appearance at the Glastonbury festival.
