‘Harry Potter’ actor Jamie Waylett charged over marijuana


A teenage actor who appears in the Harry Potter films was charged with illegally growing 10 marijuana plants, The Sun reported on Tuesday.

19-year-old Jamie Waylett, who plays Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe and Draco Malfoy‘s sidekick, is scheduled to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court in central London on July 16.

According to the British tabloid, Waylett was first arrested in April after cops stopped his car in Westminster and allegedly found 11 bags of cannabis. The police then raided his mother’s house in North London, where 10 marijuana plants worth £2,000 were said to have been found growing under hydroponics in a bedroom.

He was charged shortly before the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
