A man allegedly carrying crystal meth was arrested by Guelph, Ont., police for driving a motorized bicycle into the restricted area around a film set of a Stephen King miniseries starring American actor James Franco.

The 19-year-old sped his bike Tuesday evening at what police say was a "high speed," past officers working security on Huron Street. 

Police were able to stop him inside the barriers.

A search found he was carrying crystal meth, police say.

The man has been charged with:

  • Dangerous driving.
  • Four counts of breaching probation.
  • Three counts of breach of recognizance.
  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking.

He was also charged under Ontario's Highway Traffic Act for driving without a licence and driving without insurance. 

The miniseries, 11/22/63, is based on King's novel about a man who travels through time to try to stop the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, who was shot dead on Nov. 22, 1963.
