Bart Simpson appears before Mr. Burns in British court

FOX

Bart Simpson may finally pay for his 25 years of pranks. Kinda sorta.

A man from Eccleshall, England, with the same name as the famed carton troublemaker is facing a trial for bringing a firearm to a Birmingham airport last year. The judge in his case? None other than one Mr. Burns.

As detailed in a British news publication, the judge's full name is Richard Burns, not Montgomery, the name of the maniacal billionaire in "The Simpsons." Still, the pairing did make waves.

"It’s a bizarre coincidence that Bart Simpson is actually on trial in front of Mr. Burns but it’ll proceed as any other criminal case would," a court source said.

Simpson was arrested for possessing an antique .38 Smith & Wesson revolver. He has pled not guilty.
