Cops released a statement saying ... "[Waylett] was charged with violent disorder, having an article with intent to destroy or damage property, receiving stolen goods and also cultivating cannabis plants."

Waylett was eventually released on bail -- he's due back in court on Nov. 11.

Homeless 'Harry Potter' Dog Too Famous to Adopt

10/7/2011 8:43 AM PDT
Berry -- the dog that played Padfoot in "Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban" -- will remain an orphan for the next few weeks -- because the people who run the rescue shelter where he lives have decided he's too famous to adopt.
10-year-old Berry's original owner (a stuntman) put the dog up for adoption because he was too busy to take care of it --  but a rep for the German Shepherd Dog Rescue in the UK tells TMZ, the charity won't let anyone adopt Berry until the publicity surrounding the HP movies has died down.

According to the rep, the rescue is worried someone will adopt Berry just for his star power -- not for his companionship.

In the meantime, the rep says, "We are busy home checking lots of new people ... and then will decide if one of them is good enough."

He's clearly under her spell.

"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling just got iced up with a 40-diamond bracelet -- but perhaps she'd like to hand it over to a someone in need ... like a homeless person ... played by Harvey Levin?

'Harry Potter' Author Scores Multi-Million $$ Thank You

7/20/2011 5:00 AM PDT
As if J.K. Rowling wasn't rich enough -- Warner Bros. gave her a token of its appreciation for the latest "Harry Potter" flick -- an insanely expensive piece of jewelry.

Sources close to CEO Barry Meyer tell TMZ ... Rowling scored a white gold, antique 40-diamond bracelet worth millions of dollars -- which he presented to her at the London premiere after-party.

According to sources, Rowling was nervous about donning such a valuable piece of jewelry before she got it insured ... but  she got a more primitive form of insurance -- a bunch of burly security guards at the bash.

Price, of course, is relative -- wordwide, the latest movie has grossed more than half-a-billion bucks.

Emma Watson Shortcut in Dorm Room Evacuation

9/29/2010 8:00 AM PDT
Emma Watson modeled her little boy haircut during an emergency evacuation at Brown University yesterday morning -- but TMZ has learned ... unlike Hermione's 'do, the scary situation was a false alarm.

According to sources at Brown, the fire alarm at the dorm where she was staying went off around 10am -- and we're told, it all started with a leaky steam pipe ... which triggered the emergency alert system.

No one was injured -- and after about 10 embarrassing minutes outside in their pajamas, the students were allowed to return to their chambers of secrets.

Accio eye shadow!

Swine Flu -- All the Rage in Hollywood

9/24/2009 1:10 AM PDT
It's the newest craze sweeping through Hollywood -- celebrities with Swine Flu!!!! And now two new members are on the infectious bandwagon!

's chief medical expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta just got over his bout with the Swine Flu -- and Marilyn Manson just announced that he's got S.F. right now!

"Harry Potter's" Rupert Grint had it ... "The Early Show's" Harry Smith thinks he has it ... and Lisa Rinna claims her entire family got down with the sickness. It's a full blown trend!

According to Manson, he didn't contract it by "f**king a pig" -- we're guessing Gupta didn't either.

'Potter' Star Guilty in Potted Pot Plant Case

The kid who plays Vincent Crabbe in the "Harry Potter" movies could be heading to Azkaban wizard prison soon -- he just pled guilty to growing magical marijuana plants inside his mother's London home.

Jamie Waylett -- who plays the school bully in all six "Potter" flicks -- was popped in April after cops found eight bags of weed in the car in which Jamie was riding. Cops then searched Waylett's mom's place and found 10 pot plants.

Waylett will be sentenced on Tuesday -- he faces up to 14 years in the slammer.

Daniel Radcliffe -- He Who Must Not Be Bothered

8/21/2008 5:48 PM PDT
Daniel Radcliffe must have had some kind of magic stick up his butt the other day in NYC -- because he snubbed a huge group of Potterheads outside the New York Times building. Even Will Smith stops for all his fans!

Might want to try that cloak of invisibility next time.

Evil Harry Potter Smites God-Fearing Librarian

5/28/2008 4:50 PM PDT
When you think "Harry Potter," you think of an evil, Occultist, pagan, heathen devil, don't you?

Well, in this lawsuit, a Missouri librarian refused to push the Potter books on kids because she was afraid that The Boss -- the Almighty One -- would bring his fury on her and cast her out if she did. Unfortunately, she ended up incurring the wrath of the boss -- the one who pays her rent -- and got herself canned as a result.

So now Deborah Smith has invoked the help of the highly secular ACLU, which is helping her sue the Poplar Bluff Library for money. You know, the earthly kind. Amen.

Hermione Ditches Hogwarts for Millionaire School

4/17/2008 11:49 AM PDT
Emma Watson turned 18 this week and got a $20 million (10.5 million GBP) present - plus a $10 check from grandma.

Watson received full access to her millions and has reportedly agreed to take a money management class offered for rich kids. Her dough is in Coutts Bank which offers a course for "children" aged 17-25 to ensure they don't spend all their coin on stuff like diamond encrusted shoe laces and pet robots.

The class is taught by former alumnus, Richie Rich. We kid, of course.

Hermione's rep did not return calls for comment.
