Now THIS is the Kevin Bacon that I want six degrees of separation from. Because he seems pretty fantastic.

There's a 55-year-old guy whose real name is Kevin Bacon from Wells River, Vermont. And he was driving last Thursday afternoon when he accidentally sideswiped a parked police car.

Why did he hit the cop? Kevin Bacon was looking at his phone searching for an episode of "Saved by the Bell" he wanted to watch.

Luckily for us, he even told the cops which episode he wanted and they included it in their police report. It was the episode called "Screech's Spaghetti Sauce," where the gang bottles and sells a spaghetti sauce Screech makes in a cooking class.

It's not clear why Kevin Bacon wanted to watch that episode, or why it was so important that he had to do it while he was driving.

He was arrested and charged with gross negligent operation of a vehicle, leaving the scene of a crash, and texting while driving.
