JUNKIE rocker Pete Doherty was arrested at the weekend after claims he took drugs on a British Airways flight.
The addict singer was detained on arrival at Geneva, Switzerland, after he was found slumped in an on-board toilet.
A hypodermic needle — commonly used by heroin addicts — was reportedly found. Swiss cops fined the 30-year-old singer, but allowed him to play a gig in the country.
Doherty was jailed last year for breaching a probation order following a number of arrests relating to his drug use. He said he had given them up.
A Geneva police spokesman said: “We were contacted by the captain of a BA flight and a passenger was controlled by police.
"He was charged — but I cannot say what with. He paid a fine and was allowed to go.”
A spokesman for Pete declined to comment.
