Walter White isn't just the name of television's most notorious meth cook on "Breaking Bad." It's also the name of a real-life meth cook in Alabama. Police are currently looking for the real-life Walter White after he missed a court date following his arrest for manufacturing meth.
Walter Eddy White -- the real guy, not the fictional character -- has been on probation since 2010 after a 2008 arrest for manufacturing and distributing methamphetamine.
Earlier this year, he was arrested on the same charges of trafficking methamphetamine, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of precursor materials.
White, 55, missed a court date in July and is now the most wanted man in Tuscaloosa County. TV viewers must be glad that the fictional Walter White has much more tact than this guy.
Of course, the name Walter White has become famous since "Breaking Bad" premiered on AMC in early 2008. The dark drama follows Bryan Cranston as Walter White, a schoolteacher who becomes a meth manufacturer after being diagnosed with lung cancer. The hit series is currently in its fifth season.
White's isn't the only coincidental pop-culture related arrest this year. In January, a man named Omar Little was arrested in Baltimore on a handgun charge in an odd parallel to the HBO crime series "The Wire."
