Though a police spokesman declined to confirm whether Doherty specifically was arrested, he said: "At 2200 hours (7am Sunday AEST) on the 5th (of May), police stopped a vehicle on Kensington High Street,London.

"A 28-year-old male driver was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class A drug. He was taken to a west London,England police station, and later bailed to return in June pending further inquiries."

Doherty was held in the police station overnight.

In December he was fined '770 ($1862) and banned from driving for four months for possessing illegal drugs, including crack cocaine and heroin.
