While out at a bar with her mother, actress Emma Watson had her blue luxurious Audi (reportedly costing £30000) towed away after it blocked in a pizza restaurant manager’s vehicle for nearly four hours. A witness said the actress had blocked the entrance to a car park, leaving the owner of a pizza restaurant across the street having his car blocked in by the actress' vehicle. The manager told MailOnline, “Three-and-a-half hours of searching for the driver was the last thing I needed after working a 12-hour shift. The car was parked in front of our gate which is a no-parking zone.” Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series Renewed for Season 2 on Disney+.
Watson was said to have parked it illegally on a quiet street before she nipped into a nearby pub, the Rose and Crown, with her mum Jacqueline, reports femalefirst.co.uk. When the pizza restaurant owner called the police and they started to tow away her car, the manager said Watson came “flying out of the pub shouting, ‘That’s my car, that’s my car’.”
The actress was photographed wearing a long black trench coat while apparently begging cops and a tow truck employee to leave her car alone. But it was taken away leaving the star facing a over Rs 20,000 (£192) charge to get her Audi S3 back. She also faces a over Rs 2,000 ( £26) charge for every day it waits at the car pound.
