Bizarre Barlinnie jail footage shows Scot meeting Libertines’ rocker

A delighted Scots Libertines fan has shared the moment he met rocker Pete Doherty outside Barlinnie Prison.

David ‘Davie Ravie’ McCallum bumped into the star outside of the jail on Monday and described him as a “class bloke”.

A video of the pair meeting up has since gone viral on TikTok.

Professional wrestler Davie, 27, told the Record: “On Monday I was going up to Barlinnie to go and do a podcast with my friend who is an inmate there.

“My friend had old me that Pete was there and I might meet him, but I thought ‘no way’.

Davie described him as the ‘bold Pete Doherty’

But the Libs frontman, who has spent time in prison due to drug offences in the past, was more than happy to chat to Davie.

Davie said: “Pete was just coming out as I was going in. I shouted ‘Ah no danger! Pete Doherty, can I get a photo with you’?

“He was completely brand new. He filmed for my Tik Tok and I got a selfie. I was telling him why I was up there and he asked about my wresting.”

Doherty has recently teamed up with Barlinnie prisoners for a new art exhibition with prisoners in the nick as the project explores prison reform, rehabilitation and redemption.

Hundreds of Libertine fans have since commented on Davie’s TikTok footage.

Davie added: “It was quite a funny interaction. To meet a man of his stature was great.”

Doherty happily posed for the videos as Davie called him ‘the bold Pete Doherty’ before the singer fist pumps the air.
