Jamie Waylett, the tubby bloke who played Draco Malfoy's sidekick Vincent Crabbe in six of the Harry Potter films is now facing charges stemming from his involvement in this summer's London riots. Police say they found a bomb and 15 marijuana plants in his room. The 22-year-old served 120 hours of community service after being busted for growing marijuana back in 2009 and it has been alleged by authorities that Waylett armed himself with a Molotov cocktail back in August with the intent to set some shit on fire.—-

A New Mexico woman is facing charges after police say she put an ad on Craigslist looking to buy drugs. Police arrested Anamicka Dave, 29, earlier this week after police officers posing as drug dealers arranged to meet her through text message. Dave's ad in the "casual encounters" section said she was new in town and she was "looking for Mary Jane." Roswell Sgt. Ty Sharpe said the ad was so blatant, he had to make sure it wasn't posted by another undercover officer. "I was really surprised that someone would actually put on there they were looking for weed — an actually illegal product — to the fact that I called my boss to make sure it wasn't one of our guys trying to do a reverse sting," Sharp said.

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, a biopic about the late British mathematical genius, enigma codebreaker and architect of the modern computer. Ron Howard has been tipped to direct.

Three people were hospitalized after pot-laced brownies were served at a Southern California funeral this weekend. Two 71-year-old women and an 82-year-old man were taken to the emergency room after indulging in a tray of pot brownies during their late friend's memorial service. The trio complained of nausea, dizziness and an inability to stand. The grandchildren merely complained of the munchies.

Authorities in Massachusetts say a family got lost in a seven-acre corn maze and had to call 911 for help. The maze at Connors Farm in Danvers can take up to an hour to navigate (unless you have an iPhone 4s in which case you can totes just use the corn maze app). You thought we were joking.

When a police officer and a farm manager entered the maze to search for the family of four, the family was just 25 feet from the street.
