James Howson - James Howson A Wanted Man After Missing Court Sentencing

An arrest warrant has been issued for British actor James Howson after he failed to show up in court to face allegations he racially abused his ex-girlfriend.
The 24-year-old rising star, who played Heathcliff in a 2011 movie adaptation of Emily Bronte's classic novel Wuthering Heights, pleaded guilty earlier this year (12) to a charge of racially aggravated harassment after hurling a racist insult at his former partner Shakira Ramdihal.
At a court hearing in February (12), it emerged Howson had been sectioned for a month under the U.K.'s Mental Health Act and his sentencing was pushed back to this week (26Mar12).
He was discharged from a hospital in Newcastle, north west England on Thursday (22Mar12), but he was a no-show at Leeds Magistrates' Court on Monday (26Mar12), when he was due for sentencing. Presiding magistrate Angela Bradshaw subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest.
