    Pete Doherty is apparently at it again.

    The British rocker and ex-beau of supermodel Kate Moss, who seemingly never saw an illegal substance he didn't like, was allegedly caught using drugs on a British Airways flight and then fined upon landing in Geneva.

    Per London's Daily Mail, flight attendants discovered the 30-year-old Doherty intoxicated in an onboard lavatory and took him back to his seat, at which point they also found a hypodermic needle, prompting them to alert Swiss police, who detained him at the gate.

    "We were contacted by the captain of a BA flight and a passenger was controlled by police. He was charged—but I cannot say what with. He paid a fine and was allowed to go," a police spokesman told the newspaper.

    No word on the amount of the penalty. The Babyshambles frontman went on to play a gig later that night at the Neuchâtel Open Air Festival.

    In April 2008, Doherty served one month in jail for violating his probation for a series of drug offenses.

    Since getting out, he's resumed touring both with his band and in support of his recently released solo album, Grace/Wastelands.
