Pete Doherty has been fined $2,000 in a British court for breaking the lens of a photographer who had been following him and his family last August, Agence France-Presse reports.

The troubled 29-year-old Brit has been in and out of prison for everything from drug possession to failure to appear in court.

“Yeah, it s OK today,’ Doherty said outside the courthouse. “It should have been sorted out ages ago to be honest. It’s been hanging over me for a long time.”
