Have U.K. authorities implanted a tracking chip in Pete Doherty’s toxic wasteland of a body? It seems the Babyshambles frontman just can’t catch a break. Yesterday, Doherty was once again picked up by police, this time for littering from a cab window near London’s Regent’s Park, the U.K.’s Sun reports. The fine was issued after Doherty, who recently accepted a parting gift from ex-girlfriend Kate Moss, departed a rehab clinic in Harrogate, North Yorks, over 200 miles away. According to reports, Doherty arrived to the clinic luggage and guitar in hand but promptly departed alongside a member of his management. Though the rehab stint has been imposed due to his most recent drug offense and is the rocker’s only option aside from jail, Doherty’s departure hasn’t broken his probation. The disheveled musician’s detox will reportedly begin next Monday.
