Harry Potter ‘thug’ accused of playing true to type

An actor who has appeared in the Harry Potter films has been charged with violent disorder in the wake of the London riots, and possession of cannabis.

Jamie Waylett of Camden, North London, was arrested on September 20 after rioting across the capital in August. Waylett, 22, who played Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe is accused of violent disorder, receiving stolen goods and being in possession of an article – understood to be a petrol bomb – with intent to destroy or damage property.

All the alleged offences took place on August 8 in the Chalk Farm area. The charge of receiving stolen goods relates to a bottle of champagne allegedly looted from a Sainsbury’s. The star, who is friends with fellow Harry Potter actors Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, is the most high-profile suspect arrested in the disturbances. His case is due for a committal hearing on November 10.
