(KTVI) – It was a meeting apparently straight off the TV screen: Bart Simpson called before Mr. Burns after allegedly causing trouble.

But the encounter did not play out in cartoon form, but rather at Warwick Crown Court in the English Midlands.

Barton Simpson, known as Bart, appeared Tuesday before the judge, Mr. Recorder Burns, to face charges of possession of a firearm and possession of a dangerous article on board an aircraft.

Simpson denied the charges, according to local media reports.

His cartoon namesake is the star of the long-running U.S. TV series “The Simpsons,” which also features Mr. Burns — who runs the local nuclear power plant and is his father’s boss — as a nemesis.
