Johnny Depp could be in some serious bother after illegally bringing his two dogs to Australia.
The actor is currently filming yet another Pirates of the Caribbean movie (“Dead Men Tell No Tales”), but could face up to ten years behind bars after he brought his two Yorkshire terriers to the country on his private jet last month.
The 51-year-old failed to declare his pets and therefore broke Australia’s strict quarantine laws.
Yesterday, an Australian senate committee was told that if the issue goes to court, Depp could receive the substantial prison sentence or a maximum fine of AU$340,000 (£172,000). We assume the latter.
The pilot could also face up to two years behind bars for his role in the situation.
Officials have referred to the case as “very serious”.
Depp’s been in a couple of prison movies before though so I’m sure he’d be fine on the inside. Right?
