"I'm a bit of a cross between The Rock and Vin Diesel."
A police officer from Alabama has gone viral for his remarkable resemblance to actor and former wrestler Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
The comparisons between Morgan County Patrol Lieutenant Eric Fields and Johnson began earlier this months when the official Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page uploaded a photo of the officer.
In the picture, Fields can be seen smiling as he leans against a police van donning some very Rock-esque shades and a perfectly bald head.

In another Facebook post, the department revealed that a Walmart employee had even asked to have his photo taken with Fields because of his similarity to The Rock.

"Sgt Mason passed that along and Lieutenant Fields was happy to swing by the Hartselle Walmart to see him. Tyler is one of their many hard workers and it was great to meet him and some of his coworkers!"
Again, the resemblance is just uncanny.

He told WVTM 13 reporter Rick Karles: "I'm a bit of a cross between The Rock and Vin Diesel.
"Remember, The Rock is six-foot-four, 260 pounds, and I'm only 6-foot-2, 230 pounds. There is a big difference between the two of us."
