Jamie Waylett, the sour-faced 19-year-old actor who has portrayed the bullying Vincent Crabbe in six "Harry Potter" films and the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," was arrested in London on Tuesday for suspicion of possessing marijuana.
According to Us Weekly and various British reports, the actor was stopped with a friend while driving, which led to the officials discovering eight bags of pot inside the vehicle.
Soon enough, Waylett's situation reportedly became worse, when police raided the London-area home the young actor shares with mother, two brothers and a sister. Inside the house, the law-enforcement officials discovered 10 plants, believed to be cannabis worth approximately $2,900. According to the report, the plants were growing under powerful hydroponic lights, next to a PlayStation console.
Waylett, who has become a "Harry Potter" fan favorite, emerged from massive casting calls in the early part of the decade to land his role. A Slytherin student, Vincent Crabbe serves as one of Draco Malfoy's minions but is as helped by his size as he is fatally flawed by his dimness. An accomplice to the Death Eaters, Crabbe's wizard powers — and his distaste for Harry — increase throughout the "Potter" series.
The actor, whose film career thus far has been only in the "Potter" films, is due in court sometime in July. "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" hits theaters worldwide that very same month.
