London: English rocker Pete Doherty is facing five-years jail for allegedly breaking into a music shop in an inebriated state during a night out.

The German prosecutors have said they will press charges against Doherty in Regensburg, reports the Sun.

The 31-year-old, who is currently serving six months jail in Britain for possessing cocaine, admitted smashing a window.

However, he claimed he was so drunk that he had no memory of it or of stealing a guitar and record.

The stolen items were later found abandoned in the main square.
