British singer Pete Doherty has been arrested in Paris for buying cocaine, authorities said.

The 40-year old former Libertines and Babyshambles frontman was placed in detention on Thursday night after being stopped by police during a drug transaction, the Paris prosecutor’s office said.

The office wouldn’t confirm French media reports that Doherty was carrying 2 grams of cocaine and was arrested in Pigalle, an area known for its late-night bars.

A rep for Doherty did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.
