New York: Zooey Deschanel got quite the shock when she was mistakenly identified as one of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings on a local Fox News station.

According to Peter Ogburn , while the radio show producer and writer was watching the manhunt for a second suspect unfold on Fox 4 Dallas-Fort Worth, the `New Girl` star`s name was misidentified in the closed captioning as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev.

"Marathon bombing, he is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel," read the misleading (and completely incorrect) caption, the Huffington Post reported.

Tsarnaev was ultimately arrested Friday night after he was found hiding in a boat behind a home in Watertown, Massachusetts.
