Singer Pete Doherty has pleaded guilty to possessing heroin and cocaine.
The Babyshambles frontman appeared before Ealing Magistrates' Court in London, where he admitted two charges of possessing Class A drugs which were found when police stopped his car on November 30.
The court heard that the ex-Libertines singer was spotted at the wheel of a Jaguar speeding and was stopped by police.
Prosecutor Bryony Darbyshire told the magistrates that police noticed that he appeared to be under the influence of "something" with his eyes glazed and pupils dilated.
The officers told the singer, whose on-off relationship with supermodel Kate Moss had been in the headlines, that they were going to search the car and he admitted that they would find drugs.
Ms Darbyshire told the court that officers found a total of three packets containing 0.875gm of heroin and one packet of cocaine, weighing 0.234gm.
Ms Darbyshire told the court that Doherty had been taken to a police station and tested for drugs and proved positive for cocaine and opiates.
Doherty, who was wearing a dark overcoat and cream sweater, arrived at the court one hour and ten minutes after he was listed to appear.
After hearing brief mitigation from Eamonn Sherry, defending, the chair of the magistrates, Gurdev
Singh Dadral demanded an explanation for the sing-er's late appearance.
Mr Sherry told the court that his client apologised sincerely adding: "Mr Doherty travelled in a car and he had traffic difficulties and I am told was being followed by a number of other individuals.
"Given the press activity that there is in relation to this gentleman that is the reason."
Mr Sherry told the court that Doherty was due to return to Stoke Newington police station on January 20 and February 6 in relation to a separate allegation of possessing "small amounts" of drugs.
The magistrates released Doherty on unconditional bail, ordering him to return to the same court on February 8. He was due to appear with his band at a concert in Stoke-on-Trent last night.
Ordering a pre-sentence report, the chairman indicated that "all options" were open for sentence.
