According to a report in The Guardian, an eyewitness said they saw Doherty and two other men break into a record store in the early hours of Tuesday morning. As this story was going to press, the NME reported the singer has confirmed to a German TV station he was at the scene, but denies any involvement in the crime.
While on her way home through Regensburg's Old Town, the witness said she passed three drunk men speaking English. She reported hearing a crash, and looked back to see one of the men reaching through the broken window. A guitar and several records were later reported to be stolen.
The witness told a local newspaper, "It was Doherty, I clearly recognised him." The Regensburg police confirmed there is a famous suspect, but refused to identify them.
Doherty in in the country to star in 'The Confession of a Child of the Century' alongside actor-singer Charlotte Gainsbourg. It is his first acting role, in which he will play the 19th century writer and alcoholic Alfred de Musset. The story is based on the writer's life, during which he had an affair with the female french novelist George Sand.
"The storyline centres around a love triangle so it's pretty intense and romantic," said Doherty. "I don't know if I'm a good actor but they say I am."
