London's favorite rock'n'roll screwball, Pete Doherty, of Babyshambles is escaping jail time despite being arrested for suspicion of drug use recently. Apparently the cops didn't get him to court within 24 hours of his arrest. Not quite sure how that happened. Maybe a few extra quids in the cops pockets helped delay the process. But for more info, read the story here. --Jonathan Cunningham
