Harry Potter star Jamie Waylett has been charged with illegally growing cannabis plants, just minutes before the premiere of the latest film. Waylett, who plays bully Vincent Crabbe in the movies, will appear in a London court on July 16 for sentencing and could face up to 14 years in jail.
A police statement said that the actor was “charged with producing a Class B drug, namely 10 plants of cannabis”. The 19-year-old actor was arrested in April this year when police pulled him over in Westminster and found 11 bags of the drug in his car. They later found over £2,000 worth of cannabis plants in his London home.
