BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Stranger than fiction. An arrest in Baltimore is making news across the country.

Omar Little Jr.  is behind bars in Baltimore for a handgun violation.

The suspect shares the name of one of the most iconic characters on the former HBO series “The Wire.” The gritty crime drama was based on life in Baltimore City.

The real Omar Little is being held on $350,000 bond.

“The Wire’s” creator and former Sun reporter, David Simon, says the existence of a real life Omar Little is a complete coincidence.
