Harry Potter actor was Section 44'd

I know this seems more like a post for ONTD proper, but there's a political element, trust me.

A Harry Potter actor, sentenced over growing cannabis, was initially arrested after taking a photograph of a police patrol, it has emerged today.

Actor Jamie Waylett, 20, has been ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid work after he admitted growing the drugs.

He was arrested after police found pictures of the cannabis plants on his camera.

However, a BBC report on the sentencing hearing added: 'Police seized the camera after he was arrested for taking pictures of officers as he and his friend John Innis, 20, drove past.'

Westminster Magistrates Court heard that the pair had been stopped under the Terrorism Act, in west London, 'after the actor took a photograph of a police patrol'.

Nice to see anti-terrorist legislation being used for the important stuff, isn't it?
