UPDATE: Hours after the arrest warrant was issued, Pete Doherty's rep announced that it has been revoked and that a new hearing has been scheduled for July 24.

"It's not appropriate for me to speculate," a court spokesperson said. "It is for the magistrates to consider, but they will take it into account."
