Police in England discovered a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire after a police chase on Saturday – and it is just like iconic weapon Lucille from the TV show “The Walking Dead.”

Essex police found four weapons – including the baseball bat – in a car that had been ditched after a police chase in South Ockendon, Essex, Police Constable Paul Glensman tweeted after the chase.

Here’s the “Walking Dead” character Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, carrying Lucille in the show.

Lucille became an iconic part of the AMC show after Negan used it to kill multiple characters, including Steven Yeun’s Glenn, in the show. The weapon was named after Negan’s late wife, Lucille.

Glensman tweeted photos of the car and the weapons on Saturday and tagged Morgan’s handle in his caption. “Some nasty items found inside, including @JDMorgan’s #lucille,” he wrote. “Glad these have at least been taken off the streets tonight.”

He added that the weapon’s owner “got away,” but said the force had started inquiries into the case. INSIDER has contacted Essex Police for further comment.

Morgan responded and appeared to jokingly plead his innocence, writing, “I’m in Georgia USA!!” Police replied in jest, saying they would eliminate Morgan from their investigation.
