LONDON (Reuters) - Troubled rock singer Pete Doherty was being investigated by police on Friday after a British tabloid printed pictures it said showed him injecting drugs into a female fan's arm as she lay unconscious.

This smackhead need a smack upside the head.

I think you'll find that lying down and waiting for the buzz isn't a bad way to get high, ifyou've got someone willing to do the shooting.

This photo does not necessarily show somene who's unconscious.

That is true...which only makes this marginally better.

Sadly, I think it's only a matter of time before the Mr. Doherty ends up in the obits, rather than the gossip columns.

True.... and thats what an investigation will have to varify, but looking on the outside.... It just doesn't seem right.... This guy has had way too many chances, he obviously fancies himself a 27 year old dead legend.

If I got busted... that many times, I would be locked away pronto.

I guess I just need a publicist.

Probably not, unless you lived in the US. All kinds of folks on the downtown eastside have that kind of arrest record.

I recall from my mispent youth that lying down while someone is administering smack is not a bad idea.

I am sadly ignorant of pop culture these days, and am not familiar with the gentleman. Is he into this a bit more than say, Kieth Richards?

Probably not, but he's much worse at avoiding attention while doing so.

Or at least than Keef used to be. It's an odd fact about smack that many addictions seem to burn out on their own accord if the addict survives into their fifties. I wouldn't be surprised to learn the Keef had largely given it up by now.

I gather he still smokes a lot of pot, however.

I think Keef was (is?) quite discriminating as junkies go---always getting the best smack, and possibly getting flunkies to try it out first (although I'm not sure about the second part)

Pete Doherty is no Keef Richards, and there is a reason you have never really heard of him. He is a UK tabloid leach who is known for dating Kate Moss..... rather than his music.

Like a Gord Downie with more smack and less talent. Canadians know him but rarely will you find a non-canuck who knows who the hell he is.

So I guess what confuses me is, if you don't like his music (I don't particularly either -- only heard the first Libertines album, though) and you think he gets too much attention for his recreational activities, what do you find interesting about this story?

Good point... I guess for me, the idea of someone injecting me while I'm passed out at a party.... just plain gives me the willies.
Thats all really... GT

Getting FLUNKIES to try it out first?

Now THAT would be one hell of an unfair labour practice.
