Police arrested Doherty as he made his way out of the court room on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance, leading him straight to a police station across the road. This was after he had been ordered to pay £2050 in fine with £140 in costs and was given a driving ban of 18 months after admitting to careless driving after a gig at Gloucester's Guildhall in June.
It has been reported that upon arrival at the Crown Court, a wrap of suspicious-looking clingfilm dropped out of his pocket whilst being frisked by security.
An onlooker said, "The security man picked it up and saw it contained what looked like little blue crystals. The security man phoned the police and about six officers came over to arrest Doherty when his case was over."
The court heard that Doherty had a grand total of 21 previous drug offences and six motoring offences. His latest transgression follows an arrest in Berlin earlier in December for breaking the window of a car with a pint glass.
