Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty has been detained aboard an EasyJet flight in Barcelona after a syringe was found in the aircraft's toilet, according to an airline spokeswoman.

Police are said to be searching the plane as it sits on the runway with 142 passengers aboard, the Easyjet spokeswoman added.

Now is that fair? Just because you've been repeatedly arrested on drug charges, gone in and out of rehab, made Kate Moss look like the responsible half of your relationship, and taken "joke" photos of yourself injecting something into the arms of an unconscious woman everyone assumes the syringe belongs to you. Well I say when you "assume" something you make an "ass" out of you and Pete Doherty.
