Followup: Jamie Waylett Admits to Cannabis Possession Charge
July 16, 2009, 08:36 AM
A followup today regarding the case involving actor Jamie Waylett (Vincent Crabbe) and his arrest involving possession of an illegal substance. Appearing at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in London, England, the Telegraph reports Jamie plead guilty to growing ten Cannabis plants at his mothers home in England. Readers will recall that Jamie (19) and a friend John Innis (20) were both arrested a few months ago after a police search of a friends car found eight bags of Cannabis and a knife. Later searches of their residences produced the plants at the Waylett home and three additional bags belonging to Innis. The paper states of the events today in court:
Innis admitted possession of a knife and having 11 bags of cannabis. Adjourning the hearing until July 21, chief magistrate Timothy Workman said: "Clearly
the possession of cannabis is a serious matter and indeed the possession of
knives is serious as well. "At the moment I'm not giving you any promises as to how the court will
deal with this case."
Defending, Cheryl Rudden said Waylett had been videoing the road side for a
music compilation when he caught the attention of officers. The court heard police found shots of the cannabis plants that the star had
been growing on the same camera. This led them to search the men's homes.
Ms Rudden told the court: "There are possibly issues as to his future in
his field so far."
oh no! i hope this doesnt affect the films.
He never contributed much to the films at any rate, shame really.
Too bad! Such a waste. And Crabbe does have a major part in the last film especially in the Room of Requirement scene during the battle. Might have to re construct that scene to leave him out if he gets convicted.
I actually hope he’ll be able to film his part for DH because it will be a shame to have a replacement Crabbe when he gets a great part in the RoR.
I’m thinking they could just have Goyle take Crabbe’s part though, but that would kinda suck.
I hope he hasn’t just lost himself Crabbe’s big scene… eejit!
Too bad to jeopardize the chances he’s been given -
This is so crapy!I’m sorry but it is! Why would they what to have that?Why do they have to ruin their lives.Grrrrr!We all loved Crabbe and we want him in DH but since he had that all those chancesa are up in the air.
gosh!! and SnapesSilverDoe, u stole my word :P !! but ur right, he is an eejit!!!
If he does escape a prison sentence WBs can not let Jamie Waylett reprise his role as Crabbe in DHs. Think about what sort of message that would send out to children!!
When I first heard about this a few weeks ago, I really hoped it was just some crazy rumor. I was a huge fan of Jamie Waylett. I love him as Crabbe in the movies and, he seemed such a great guy outside of the movies. He has had an important minor role which would have become a much greater role in the later movies.
He had so much love and respect from his fans, how crazy to just go throw it all away :(
..tis a shame.
Potter2005, I hate to say this, but Jamie Waylett isn’t the only celebrity who has participated in children’s films who has done or possessed drugs. He isn’t the first and he certainly won’t be the last.
