Pippa Middleton

Pippa Middleton’s in a spot of trouble after pictures emerged of her sitting in the front seat of a car in Paris, while her friend jokingly pointed a fake gun at chasing photographers.

Might seem like just a harmless prank, but it could have repercussions for the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister. She wasn’t holding the gun, but all occupants of the car could be facing charges.

UK’s The Sun reported:

The Sun was told: “If the evidence points to her involvement, she will be prosecuted. Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest and interrogation.”

The source confirmed that if the gun was REAL, brandishing it in a public place is punishable by up to seven years’ jail “for all parties involved”.

Even if it was FAKE the maximum jail term is two years. The source said: “Certainly if you were in a car and knew somebody was using a gun to warn people off you’d be liable to arrest.”

Apparently the photographer who took the pictures – and who the gun was pointed at – is considering his options.
