July 20th, 2008 - 7:05 pm ICT by ANI  

Washington, July 20 (ANI): Rocker Pete Dohertys arrest warrant has been withdrawn just hours after it was issued - in an ongoing row over missed court appearances.

The Babyshambles frontman was expected to appear in court in Somerset, England on 17July to enter a plea after allegedly attacking a female press photographer last summer (07).

He was charged with criminal damage to Catherine Mead’’s camera lens following the incident.

But after the star failed to show up - his second missed hearing in the case - magistrates in Yeovil, Somerset issued a warrant for his arrest without bail.

However, following intervention from Doherty’’s lawyers the warrant was
withdrawn just a few hours later.

“The matter has been resolved and the warrant has been withdrawn, Contactmusic quoted the singers rep, as saying. (ANI)
