|In Harry Potter|
Jamie was hit by a car when he was nine. Doctors said he had almost no chance of surviving, and if he did, he would have brain damage. He was under intensive care for three days. The doctors almost gave up hope when a family friend demanded that the doctors check his blood. They gave Jamie a transfusion which woke him up and caused him to improve. He tried out for the role of Dudley Dursley before accepting his role of Vincent Crabbe.
On 7 April 2009, Jamie Waylett and another man were reported to have been stopped by officers. A spokesman for the Metropolitan police could not confirm the identity of those arrested, but confirmed two 19-year-old men were arrested on April 2nd after officers stopped a car and eight bags, believed to contain cannabis, were discovered. The two occupants were then arrested and taken to a central London police station. Later that night an address was searched where a number of plants, again believed to be cannabis, and equipment used for the plant's cultivation were found. Waylett was charged a month later for possession of the drug. He appeared in court on 16 July, and pled guilty to growing the plants in his mother's home, but claimed that they were for his personal use and not for distribution. On 21 July, his twentieth birthday, Waylett was sentenced to 120 hours of community service.
In September 2011, He was charged with taking part in the 2011 London riots, armed with a petrol bomb.  Waylett was sentenced to two years in prison as a result of his participation in the riots.
