Gay British porn star Bruno Knight was sentenced to two years in federal prison Thursday for trying to smuggle a half-pound of meth out of Los Angeles International Airport by hiding it in his anus in June, City News Service (via Los Angeles Daily News) reports.

Knight, whose real name is Philip Gizzie, was arrested on June 16 after telling LAX customs officers that he "inserted three large objects containing methamphetamine" in his anus. He will also serve three years of supervised release after he leaves prison.

"I am sorry to you and your country," the 31-year-old porn star told U.S. District Judge Manuel Real.

He also apologized in a letter to the court, saying he was thankful for being sober during the last five months in a federal lockup.

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

Neha A. Meta, Knight's attorney, said the porn star's actions were carried about because of his addiction and tried to get him a six-month sentence.

"He's not a sophisticated drug dealer," she said. "It was mostly for his personal use."

After a week of partying in North Hollywood, Knight tried to board a Virgin Atlantic flight at LAX that was headed to London but was stopped and questioned by customs officers after they were tipped off by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. They were told something was wrong with Knight after he was allegedly "moving erratically" and "sweating profusely."

Knight told the authorities "he had taken meth, marijuana, cocaine and the narcotic sedative known as GHB over the weekend but was not high at the moment," according to an affidavit.

During a second round of questioning, he told officers he had three packs of meth in his body.

"Gizzie expelled two of these objects at LAX and passed the third object at Centinela Hospital," the affidavit reads.

Knight also revealed he is an HIV-positive porn star and male escort and that he left London three days before to come to the U.S.

According to Al's Gay Porn Stars (extremely NSFW), Knight is six-feet-tall and "is versatile and into leather, fisting, water sports, S&M as well as more vanilla activities between the sheets." He's worked for a number of porn studios, including Men at Play and Alpha Males. As City News Service points out, Knight plays an airport security guard who searches for drugs in other gay porn stars' bodies in the 2011 porn flick "Security Control."
