Porn star Bruno Knight has been arrested in California, after attempting to smuggle crystal meth into the UK.

The British-born actor, real name Phillip Gizzie, was arrested at Los Angeles Airport after attempting to board a Virgin Atlantic flight with the drugs inside his anus.

According to reports, he was stopped by customs officials after a tip from the US Drug Enforcement Administration, and during questioning it was noticed that Knight was “moving erratically” and “sweating profusely”.

The star told officials he had taken methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana and GHB, and later admitted to having the crystal meth inside him.

He was carrying three packets of the drug – a total of 226 grams.

He was able to dislodge two of the packets himself, but the third was unable to be removed.

He was transferred to Centinela Hospital in Inglewood, where the third package was removed by enema and seized.

Knight is currently being held at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center, and has reportedly waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

He is yet to be charged following the incident.
