London, Mar 20(ANI): Jamie Waylett, who played Vincent Crabbe in the Harry Potter films, consumed stolen Champagne before arming himself with a petrol bomb during the London riots, a court has heard.
Waylett, 22, downed champagne after it was looted from a ransacked Sainsbury's store, it was said.
He was caught on camera during the third day of the London riots, as violence erupted in Chalk Farm, north London, on August 8, the Wood Green Crown Court heard.
Prosecutor Rebekah Hummerstone said Waylett was spotted running across the Chalk Farm Road after a gang smashed front windows of a Sainsbury's supermarket.
"Moments later, he accepted a bottle of sparkling wine from a friend who is also seen on the footage carrying a number of bottles. He was picked up by CCTV two minutes later. He and other members of his group were carrying petrol bombs," The Telegraph quoted Hammerstone, as saying.
"The prosecution say he appears to have travelled to Camden from his home to join in and play his part in the civil disorder. His handling of the petrol bomb is sufficient of his intention that evening," he added.
Waylett, who is friends with fellow Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, admitted before police that he was 'fascinated' by the 2011 disorder but denied taking part in violence. (ANI)
