The View singer Kyle Falconer was banned from a pub in Scotland for driving a motorbike along the bar

Kyle Falconer was banned from a pub for driving a motorbike along the bar.

The View singer admits a drinking session with his bandmates at their local bar in Dundee, Scotland, got out of hand after they stayed up until the early hours of the morning.

Guitarist Pete Reilly explained: "Our best nights were in The Doghouse. It's a pub we used to rehearse in and when it shuts at 12, we used to go downstairs and sit there until 6am nearly every night. One night Kyle drove a scooter along the bar."

Kyle added: "It wasn't a scooter, it was a motorbike. We were obsessed with scooters for a while and I got f***ed up so I drove it along the bar."

Kyle isn't the only member of the band to run into problems following during a wild night out.

Drummer Steven Morrison was arrested after partying with Pete Doherty.

He told Maxim magazine: "I was hanging round with him and he said, 'Do you want to go and see Dirty Pretty Things to p**s Carl Barat off?' So he went out and bought a Jaguar! We were flying round the streets and couldn't find the place.

"We were literally about 100 yards from the venue and we got surrounded by these blue flashing lights and arrested. We spent 12 hours in the police station."
