Doherty was banged up for 3½ months

last week for failing to take drug tests

ordered by a court after he admitted

possessing heroin, crack, cannabis and

the horse tranquiliser ketamine.


He is sharing a cell in the Scrubs’

Connibere detox wing with a

28-year-old drug dealer.

Doctors are giving him heroin

substitute methadone in a bid

to wean him off.

But the rocker

is topping up

with the real thing.

The fellow inmate said:

“He hasn’t received his prison wage

yet so he’s getting the drugs on credit

and writing IOUs.”

Doherty has struck up a friendship

with a burly ex-streetfighter named Ray,

who is protecting him after lags started

a rumour the singer brought a stash of

drugs with him from the outside.

The inmate said:

“It wasn’t true but it was enough

to make people want to find him

and rob him.

Ray is making sure this doesn’t happen.”


Prison officers are said to treat Doherty

like a superstar –

and tramp from other

wings to get his autograph.


The inmate said:

“He usually signs his name next

to a scribbled smiley face with a trilby.”


He added that Doherty sleeps on a

urine-stained mattress and has been

told he will be transferred to an open

prison when a place is available.

A Prison Service spokesman said last night:

“We will act on any intelligence which

indicates drugs are being smuggled or abused.”
