A cop is mistaken for The Rock, Patrol Lieutenant Eric Fields looks like none other than Dwayne Johnson, the world-famous movie star known for the “Jumanji” movies and one of the most beloved professional wrestlers of all time.
U.S. cop routinely mistaken for The Rock
The sheriff’s office posted this on Facebook last week when a local fan had to see for himself, “This gentleman recently met Sgt. Mason and informed him that he wanted to meet our deputy who people say looks like “The Rock.”
Indeed, that fan and many others feel the same way about the muscular law enforcement officer (who also shaves his head like Johnson), and some even post comparisons on TikTok .
Fields, 37, has worked for the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office for 17 years, including in the jail, investigations, special victims unit and with endangered children before taking over as deputy U.S. marshal.
Fields said he’s been “a running joke” for a few years, but the comparisons don’t even stop at Johnson. “I’ve been called the love child of The Rock and Vin Diesel,” Fields said.
The self-described cut said he’ll take it enough to do an impression of both Johnson and Diesel if pressed to do so.
Last week, the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office released a photo of Fields and a “fan” who had just met him. A colleague was at a local Walmart where he told someone he had a co-worker who looked like The Rock.
Fields hopes it only allows him to connect more with the people of Morgan County.
“We really love getting involved with the community, cutting and being neighbors, not just law enforcement,” he said.
He said his family even sees him, and his wife often buys him Dwayne Johnson paraphernalia for workouts. But despite people’s expectations to get as close as possible to meeting The Rock through Fields’ likeness, he said he wouldn’t want to disappoint them and can only be himself.
