West Hampstead Harry Potter star faces riot petrol bomb charge
A Harry Potter actor from West Hampstead was sent for trial on suspicion of arming himself with a petrol bomb during the London riots today (Thursday, November 10).
Jamie Waylett - who played wizarding bully-boy Vincent Crabbe in the multi-billion pound film franchise - was committed to Wood Green Crown Court.
He faces charges of threatening violent disorder, handling stolen goods, and having a petrol bomb during the Camden riots in August.
Waylett, dressed in a hoodie and trainers, spoke only to give his name and address during the hearing at Highbury Magistrates’ Court.
The Potter star, whose character was written out of the final two films, will appear before a judge on November 24 to enter his plea.
