SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -
The driver of a movie prop car marked to look like a sheriff's patrol vehicle was charged with drunk driving, speeding, and not having a driver's license over the weekend.
Christopher Anthony Diederich, 49, of China Grove, was stopped by Deputy Gene Smitley on Highway 152 West Saturday night, according to a report from the Rowan County Sheriff's Office.
Smitley reported that he saw Diederich driving a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe left of the center lane, and at a high rate of speed for more than two miles.
Smitley estimated the SUV at between 80-90 miles an hour on 152. As Smitley got close to the Tahoe he noticed the markings on the vehicle identifying it as being from the Sleepy Hollow Sheriff's Department.
Sleepy Hollow is the name of a television pilot being filmed this week in Salisbury by 20th Century Fox. The production is using several marked patrol cars.
Once Smitley made the traffic stop, he approached Diederich and noticed the odor of alcohol and noticed that the driver's eyes were "red and glassy."
A blood alcohol test taken on the roadside produced a .14, nearly twice the legal limit, according to the report.
Smitley asked Diederich if he had been drinking and the driver said that he had. He told Smitley that he was driving a movie prop car and was taking it home.
It is not clear in the report if Diederich works for 20th Century Fox or if he has been hired as an extra or a driver. He does not have a valid driver's license, according to the sheriff.
Diederich was released to the custody of his wife.
