The People reports that Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty gulped down methadone he had obtained from a pharmacist the other day, before jumping a red light in his battered Jag. “I saw Pete go into the chemist’s and there was a definite change in his behavior after he came out,” a witness revealed. “He is an absolute menace. How he has still got his license is beyond me.” But the onlooker added: “I don’t think he was so out of it that he didn’t know what he was doing. When he spotted two police officers on horseback he calmed down and drove properly before going back to being a madman.” The full story at people.co.uk has since been removed.
