(Scroll down for video) He was speeding because that is what Superman is known for.

A man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs after he was caught speeding, police in Utah said.

The incident however, took a strange twist when police discovered the identity of the man. Christopher Reeves, not to be confused with Superman actor Christopher Reeve, was arrested earlier this week after he was speeding along a highway.

Members of the Davis County Sheriff said that Reeves, who wore a Superman t-shirt at the time of his arrest, failed a field sobriety test. Police also found synthetic marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a bag of methamphetamine, a police spokesperson said.

The bag of methamphetamine weighed 52 grams. Reeves admitted to swallowing two Lortab pills about two hours before being arrested.

Reeves was transported to the Davis County Jail where he was booked on charges of possession with intent to distribute, as well as several traffic violations.
