Jamie Waylett, the actor who has played Vincent Crabbe in all of the Harry Potter films, has been arrested on charges of cannabis possession. Waylett is 19 years old.
Jamie Waylett Arrested
Jamie Waylett was taken into custody by police in London last week, a spokesperson tells the BBC. Officers stopped Waylett’s vehicle and say they discovered eight bags of cannabis during a search. A subsequent raid at Waylett’s home is said to have turned up 10 plants also believed to contain the substance.
Waylett is now free on bail. He is scheduled to appear in court in July, once labs have finished tests on the substances.
Vincent Crabbe Actor
Jamie Waylett’s character in the Harry Potter films, Vincent Crabbe, is best known as one of the two main sidekicks to Potter rival Draco Malfoy. Waylett has acted as Vincent Crabbe in all five of the movies that have been released thus far and revived his part for the upcoming sixth episode, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince — also, incidentally, scheduled for this coming July.
Warner Brothers has not commented on Waylett’s arrest.
