If only the real-life Walter White was as stealthy as Breaking Bad's Walter White.

Walter Eddy White, 55, who just so happens to share the same name as The One Who Knocks, is wanted in Alabama after allegedly violating his 2010 probation from a past meth conviction, the Tuscaloosa News reports. White was put on probation after he was convicted in 2008 — the year Breaking Bad premiered — for producing methamphetamine. He's currently on the Tuscaloosa County's most-wanted list.
