The Libertines frontman Pete Doherty has been arrested for the second time in 48 hours.
After being arrested on Friday in Paris for buying cocaine, Doherty was released and celebrated with a night of drinking, when he ended up getting involved in a “drunken brawl” with a 19-year-old Parisian man, according to the Daily Mail. As a result, Doherty was back in handcuffs just hours after leaving police custody.

The unnamed accuser filed a police complaint, where he claimed to have received injuries in the fight, which resulted in Doherty getting charged with “violence by a person in a state of drunkenness.”
Doherty’s lawyer Arash Derambarsh has explained that the frontman went back to his hotel after leaving jail, where he took sleeping pills. After, he left his hotel in pajamas to “go and celebrate his liberation in a bar near him,” according to Derambarsh. “He drank and people made him drink,” and the fight took place just hours later.
