(Newser) – One surefire way to have your otherwise nondescript arrest on drug charges make headlines is to have the name Christopher Reeves and get caught while wearing a Superman shirt. The weirdness stuck out to police in Davis County, Utah, who took pains to emphasize that their suspect is no relation to the late actor who spells his last name Reeve, reports the Davis Clipper. It caught the attention of the Smoking Gun, too: "Reeves also presumably is not related to George Reeves, who played Superman in the 1950s TV series Adventures of Superman. The 33-year-old got pulled over for driving erratically and is charged with meth possession and DUI.

Christopher Reeve doesn't spell his name at all anymore.Usually dead people's pre-mortem actions are referred to in past tense...because they're dead.

The police must have had kryptonite...how else could they have overpowered him? And we all were led to believe those were stun guns.
