Rocker Pete Doherty has been arrested for throwing a pint glass and smashing the back window of a car after an evening of drinking in Germany.

The 'Babyshambles' frontman was taken into custody for throwing the glass at the car parked outside Trinkteufel (Drink Devil) bar in Berlin shortly before 7am on Saturday morning, Contactmusic reported.

Doherty was taken to a police station not far from Checkpoint Charlie - the famous crossing point between East and West Germany when the country was separated after World War II - where he spent the next three hours. He was booked for property damage and released.

Doherty had been thrown out of another bar a short while earlier, and upon arriving at Trinkteufel had been asking staff where he could buy some drugs.

"I almost threw them out too. He was drinking shots and constantly asking where to get cocaine," Contactmusic quoted a bartender telling German newspaper Bild.
