Drug dealer does Celebritish's bidding
Yes, a nasty wrong'un has had the pleasure of punching Peter Doherty Esquire square in the (moon) face. And it didn't happen in a nasty north London hell hole like you'd expect, but in a pub in Pete's new home town, the peaceful, rural Marlborough in Wiltshire.
There seems to be some disagreement about what it was over, with witnesses saying it was about drugs and Pete's management saying that's bollocks, but to be fair it does sound like a nasty man picked on Petey without good reason, so we can't applaud such mindless violence (much).
Still, our favourite bit is this quote from the landlord: "He had been enjoying a quiet pint on his own, just him and his cat."
Um, what? Celebritish are cat lovers ourselves, but taking a kitty down the boozer is a step too far. Still, for a cat more used to the crack den we suppose it's a lesser evil.
