‘The Walking Dead’ Fans Arrested For Trespassing
The Walking Dead fans are hardcore, but a group of five young people who really love the show took their TWD devotion to another level by trespassing on the show’s Georgia set.
According to FOX 5 Atlanta, Trevan Pierce McElroy, 20, Karlee Marie Whaley, 19, Gabrielle Taylor Freed, 19, Russell David Motsch, 18, and Darby Ruth Workman, 25, were arrested last week after sneaking onto the TWD set.
The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office said the group hiked onto the private property for several hours, hoping to see one of the locations used on the show.

Deputies revealed the quintet snapped pictures with their cell phones, which they were later ordered to delete.
All five were charged with criminal trespassing.
Speaking of filming, most of the season thus far has been filmed inside a studio so as to prevent spoilers from leaking, but Spoiling Dead Fans says smoke was spotted coming from Alexandria late last week.

The almost always-reliable site also noted the group was filming inside at The Sanctuary, AKA Negan’s headquarters. There are unconfirmed reports Daryl Dixon was spotted there, leading many to believe Negan might have taken him hostage.
See, you can still get great intel without trespassing!
The Walking Dead Season 7 will premiere in the fall on AMC.
