Pete Doherty has been accused of taking part in a robbery at a German record shop in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The Libertines and Babyshambles frontman is currently in the town of Regensburg to film the movie ‘The Confession Of A Child Of The Century’, in which he stars. A guitar and a number of records were reportedly taken from the shop.

A witness told a local paper Mittelbayerische Zeitung that she saw three men, who were all drunk and speaking in English, standing outside the shop in question at the time the break in is believed to have taken place. She added that she saw one of them reaching through a broken window and that “it was Doherty, I clearly recognised him”.

As previously reported, ‘The Confession Of A Child Of The Century’ tells the story of nineteenth century writer Alfred de Musset and co-stars Charlotte Gainsbourg. It began shooting in Paris at the end of last year. Though, to the best of our knowledge no record shops were broken into there while Doherty was in town. But I’m not sure they actually have record shops in France any more.
