TV Fact #182 – April 24th, 2015:

A real live criminal, on the run from the Baltimore Police Department, entered the set of “Homicide: Life on the Street” (1993-1999) and surrendered to the actors in uniform. This incident was later spoofed in an episode where the actors in the show chased a suspect onto the set of “Homicide” and encountered the director of the episode, Barry Levinson, and several of their favorite actors from the show.

In a Movie Fact a couple days ago I noted the line between reality and fiction. I mentioned how terrible it was when the drama of fiction blurs into reality. However, as this shows, every once and awhile fiction makes reality better. The back and forth of good and bad…that is one thing reality and fiction definitely have in common.
