Pippa Caught in Gun-Pointing Scandal

The pristine year in the press for the Middleton sisters might be over. Duchess Kate’s younger sister, Pippa, was photographed in the passenger seat of a friend's convertible in Paris while the driver pointed a pistol at a photographer who was following the car. According to London paper The Sun, the maximum jail sentence for brandishing a weapon in public is seven years "for all parties involved." The French probably won't view the event mildly, in light of a recent string of killings that swept the city. Pippa was said to have been taken in for questioning, and the incident reportedly sent shock waves through Buckingham Palace.
