James Franco film set crashed by meth-toting man on motorized bike
Miniseries 11/22/63, based on Stephen King, was being filmed in Guelph, Ont.
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.
