British Gay Porn Star “Bruno Knight” Sentenced To Two Years Prison For LAX Meth Smuggling:

A British gay porn star who was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport for attempting to smuggle a half-pound of crystal meth in a body cavity was today ordered to spend two years in federal prison.

Philip Gizzie, who uses the stage name Bruno Knight, must also serve three years of supervised release after getting out of prison.

“I am sorry to you and your country,” Gizzie told U.S. District Judge Manuel Real.

In a letter to the court, Gizzie said he had been addled by drugs at the time of the crime and was thankful for the sobriety he found during five months in a federal lockup.

Gizzie, 31, was arrested June 16 after he told LAX customs officers that he had “inserted three large objects containing methamphetamine” into a body cavity, according to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint.

Gizzie pleaded guilty in August to a federal count of possession with intent to distribute meth.

Defense attorney Neha A. Meta, arguing for a six-month sentence, told Real that her client’s crime was driven by addiction.

“He’s not a sophisticated drug dealer,” she said. “It was mostly for his personal use.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Vanessa Baehr-Jones said Gizzie’s crime warranted the two-year term.

“The transportation of drugs internationally is a very serious offense,” the prosecutor said outside the courtroom.

According to the affidavit, Gizzie was scheduled to depart LAX on a flight to London after what he described as a weekend of partying with friends in North Hollywood.

Acting on an anonymous tip to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, customs officials located Gizzie, who had no checked luggage, and began questioning him.

Gizzie, appearing “nervous and sweating profusely,” told officers that he had taken meth, marijuana, cocaine and the narcotic sedative known as GHB over the weekend but was not high at the moment, the affidavit said.

During a secondary inspection, Gizzie told officers that he was carrying three packets of meth in his body.

“Gizzie expelled two of these objects at LAX and passed the third object at Centinela Hospital,” the affidavit states, describing the weight of the drugs as 226 grams.

Describing himself as an HIV-positive porn actor and male escort, Gizzie said he had left London three days earlier with his partner, a Virgin Atlantic flight attendant.

Gizzie has worked for several gay porn studios. In a scene from the 2011 porno film “Security Control,” Gizzie plays an airport security guard who searches another porn actor’s body for drugs.
