Singer Pete Doherty arrested in Germany

Doherty apologised for offending German people last week

Singer Pete Doherty has been arrested in Germany after allegedly throwing a bottle at a parked car window.

Doherty, 30, was detained by police after the incident in the Kreuzberg area of Berlin early on Saturday morning.

He was released without charge and it is not yet known if any further action will be taken against him.

Last week, he was forced to apologise for performing a verse of the German national anthem with Nazi connotations.

The singer was booed after singing "Deutschland, Deutschland ueber alles" at a music festival in Munich that was also broadcast live on Bavarian radio.

A spokesperson for the singer said: "He deeply apologises if he has caused any offence."

Doherty was questioned on Saturday morning after allegedly throwing a bottle near a bar called Trinkteufel.

He is due back in the UK for a gig with his band Babyshambles in Sheffield on 10 December.
