British Rocker Pete Doherty Jailed for 6 Months for Cocaine Possession


Troubled British singer Pete Doherty was tossed in the slammer for six months on Friday for possessing cocaine.

Pete Doherty, who is the former frontman for the Libertines, has battled crack and heroin addictions for over seven years.

Last January, Doherty was arrested following the death of his friend Robyn Whitehead, and was subsequently charged with cocaine possession.

Pete pleaded guilty in April 2011 and was sentenced to six months in prison.

The rocker was right in the middle of his U.K. tour but now all the show dates have been scrapped.
