Officials at Washington DC's National Cathedral have banned location filming after they spotted Martin Sheen's presidential character on THE WEST WING put a cigarette out on their floor.

Cathedral staff nixed director David Dobkin's plans to shoot a scene for upcoming comedy THE WEDDING CRASHERS at the US capital building after they caught Sheen's PRESIDENT JED BARTLET trashing a cigarette.

Dobkin says, "The West Wing had filmed there, and Martin Sheen had put a cigarette out on the floor and walked out, and it was on the show.

"They were really upset about it, so they were not allowing filming anymore."
