Pippa Middleton May Be Arrested After Gun Incident In Paris

Pippa Middleton has a problem. The younger sister to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, is at the center of a scandal involving paparazzi photographers in Paris and what appears to be a gun.

Pippa, who jetted off to Paris this weekend for a costume party, was photographed sitting in an Audi convertible with three male companions. The problem: the driver is pointing what appears to be a pistol at the photographer.

It’s unclear whether Pippa and her friends were being pursued by the paparazzi, but France’s strict gun control laws put the 27-year-old in a seriously compromised position. The illegal use of a gun in public is punishable by up to seven years in jail — and even the brandishing of a fake gun carries up to a two year sentence. A source in Paris’ Judicial department told Us Weekly, “If the evidence points to [Pippa Middleton’s] involvement, she will be prosecuted. Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest and interrogation.”

Neither Middleton, nor the Palace have commented on the incident, but we’re pretty sure they can’t be happy about it.
