Pete Doherty Banned From Driving

Rock star Pete Doherty was given a 12-month driving ban and fined £500 today after he admitted allowing his manager to use his Daimler without insurance.

A lawyer entered a guilty plea on Doherty's behalf during a hearing before magistrates in Lowestoft.

Last month the singer's manager Andrew Boyd was given a 12-month jail term after a court heard he ran into a pedestrian delivering local newsletters then drove off at speed in the Daimler. Boyd, 42, admitted a string of motoring offences including dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and driving without a licence or insurance during a hearing at Ipswich Crown Court on February 24. The Crown Court heard that 43-year-old Chris Corder, of Hadleigh, suffered "catastrophic'' brain injuries. He remains in a coma. Prosecutor Steven Dyble said Boyd was at the wheel of Mr Doherty's car when he hit Mr Corder in Hadleigh last September. He said Boyd's four-year-old son was in the back and told the court that police found the car in a body repair shop in London.
