Jamie Waylett, 19, who plays school bully Vincent Crabbe, will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court in central London on July 16.

Waylett has played the rotund and dim-witted Crabbe in all the Harry Potter films.

He was charged shortly before the world premiere in London of the latest in the blockbuster series, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
