British singer Pete Doherty was arrested in Paris for buying cocaine, authorities said.
The 40-year-old former Libertine and Babischambs frontman was arrested Thursday night after being stopped by police during a drug deal, the Paris Prosecutor's Office said.
The service does not confirm reports in the French media that Doherty was carrying 2 grams of cocaine and was arrested in Pigale, an area known for its bars at night.
