Pippa Middleton Caught in Gun-Wielding Scandal
ABC Good Morning America ^ | April 16, 2012 | KATIE KINDELAN

Pippa Middleton, the sister-in-law of England's presumptive future king, could face criminal charges after a male companion was reportedly caught brandishing a gun and allegedly pointing it at a photographer following the pair in Paris... Charges could result in prison sentences of up to seven years for all four people in the car, or a two-year sentence if the gun turns out to be a fake, a source told the Sun.

"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 said.

The French photographer is still weighing whether to file a formal police complaint

I’ve read reports from dailymail.co.uk that the photo has been scrubbed from media sites. It was posted earlier, but it has been removed. So if there is no photo, does that mean it did not happen?

The Nazis executed people who only knew of someone else having a weapon ;the “crime” was not reporting the gun to the “authorities”.

Any government that disarms the people is evil.

It seems she didn’t learn the lesson from the late Princess Diana, “Don’t get in the car with a drunk driver in France.”

because in the pictures, unfortunately for her, it does look as though she found the funny side of it," he said.
Does this mean that if Pippa was smiling while the driver was (stupidly) jokingly pointing the pistol, then she's guilty of participation?

God help civilization.

So, Pippa was in a car in France with a guy who held a gun and she and the other passengers will be prosecuted in England? That’s what you call some of that there totalitiarianism.

Y'all can have her.

She's even got this huge nasty bloody tumor growing out of her head.

Ew.

“Royals Under Siege,” according to ABC?

Pippa Middleton is not a “royal,” nor is she married to a member of the royal family.

Ditto to that ...
Huge embarrassment for the royals ... even though she's extended family.

Lesson: Stay out of FRANCE

The chances of her spending 1 nanosecond incarcerated are the same as Barrack Obama appointing a conservative judge.
NONE.

Looks like "assault with a deadly weapon" ... being committed by an absolutely incompetent fool.

Seems to me a "reasonable person" might well fear for his life upon being aimed at like that ... and a reasonable person might well take action accordingly.

Dipshit there is lucky he didn't get shot.

"Jail time for being in the same car? Wow"

What if someone points a gun from one of those double-decker buses? Do they charge everyone on the bus, including the driver?

She may not have even known the male companion had a gun. What’s she supposed to do, put her companions through a metal detector before going out? ABSURD!

Besides, after that dress she wore to her sister’s wedding, she has immunity for life as far as I am concerned.
