British rocker Pete Doherty was arrested in Berlin over the weekend for drunken and disorderly behaviour, daily Bild reported on Monday.

The Saturday morning arrest came just a week after the 30-year-old was hauled off stage at a weekend music festival in Munich after he began singing the disused first verse of the German national anthem, which is often associated with the Nazis.

Doherty, the ex-boyfriend of model Kate Moss, was reportedly celebrating the end of his recent tour in Germany at the Kreuzberg district bar Trinkteufel, or “Drink Devil” just before 7 am with friends, the paper said.

“The three of them had just come from Wiener Straße. There they’d been tossed out of a bar,” Trinkteufel barkeeper “Banana” told the paper. “I almost threw Pete out too. He was drinking shots and constantly asking about cocaine.”

Not long after Doherty reportedly threw a glass out of the bar at the window of a Ford Fiesta, at which point a passerby called the police.

Police arrested Doherty and issued a ticket for property damage, releasing him some three hours later.

The arrest is the latest in a long line of controversies for the 30-year-old Babyshambles singer, whose career has been marred by drug use and jail time.
