Kevin Pietersen's brother in law, Samuel Taylor, has been arrested by the Brit police for possessing sawn-off shotgun, imitation firearms and drug cannabis.

Samuel, who is Pietersen's singer wife Jessica Taylor's brother, appeared in the court after being charged by the police on New Year's Eve and was remanded in custody until later this month, the Sun reports.

The former plumber was arrested on Saturday after cops found a weapon buried in woodland in Preston, Lancashire.
