"Harry Potter" actor Jamie Waylett may be living up to his bad-boy character Vincent Crabbe’s reputation.

Waylett, 22, who played the Slytherin sidekick of Harry’s enemy Draco Malfoy, has been charged with violent disorder and possession of marijuana after this summer’s London riots, according to The Guardian.

A police spokesman told the UK newspaper: "He was charged with violent disorder, having an article with intent to destroy or damage property, receiving stolen goods and also cultivating cannabis plants."

Waylett is currently out on bail, but this is not the actor’s first run-in with the law.

Back in 2009, E News reported that the Hogwarts schoolboy was arrested and accused of possessing marijuana after he was pulled over and the substance was allegedly found in his car.
