It's a strange case of reality mimicking art: a man in Alabama named Walter White is wanted by the police for meth manufacturing charges.
I'm not kidding.
The real-life Walter White is 55 years old, not 51 like in the show. But you don't need many similarities between the Breaking Bad character played by Bryan Cranston and this guy. The name and the meth connection alone are enough to raise eyebrows.
According to AL.com, "Walter Eddy White, 55, was on probation in Tuscaloosa County beginning in 2010 after being arrested in 2008 on charges of trafficking methamphetamine, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of precursor materials, according to court documents."
White violated his parole earlier this year by being caught for dealing meth in Bibb County. He then didn't show up for a court date, leading police to call for his arrest.
By the looks of this Walter White, his meth probably isn't as pure as his fictional counterpart's.
While this Walter is on the other side of the country from where the AMC's Walter is supposed to be, it's a little weird, no? No word yet on whether Walter's Alabamian assistant, Jesse Pinkman, is wanted on any charges, but if I were police, I would be worried about this fugitive going to a diner and buying a really big gun.
If you're from Alabama and you see this guy at a Walmart or the trailer park or wherever (I can make that joke, I'm from Alabama), contact the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office at 205-752-0616.
Breaking Bad will air its next episode, "Buyout," Sunday at 10/9c on AMC.
