Pete Doherty released

Pete Doherty has been released from prison.

The Babyshambles singer was released from London's Wormwood Scrubs at 7.10am this morning (06.05.08).

He had served 29 days of a 14-week sentence for breaching his probation.

Dressed in a suit and tie, he revealed outside the prison that he was pleased to be out and looking forward to having a rum and coke and spending time with his pet cats.

When asked if he had taken drugs in prison, the singer replied: "Well, I knew it was going to be a bit rough to start with, with the overcrowding and the medical facilities.

"Although they do their best - they are good, they can't really cater for the average junkie."

Pete also showed off a certificate stating he had passed a drugs test while in prison.

The singer was jailed after breaching probation terms which required him to take part in a drug rehabilitation programme and make regular visits to court for progress reports.

He was jailed by District Judge Davinder Lachhar after it was revealed the rocker had regularly been late or missed probation appointments and had used various drugs.

The usual unpredictability and undeniable charisma from the Libertines/Babyshambles man trying to keep his nose clean.
