Police arrest drunk time traveller from 2048
Police officers in Casper, Wyoming, have arrested a drunk man claiming to have time travelled from the year 2048 to warn of an impending alien invasion.
Bryant Johnson, of Casper, was was arrested on 2 October for public intoxication, according to reports by KTOW.
Protesting his innocence, Bryant told police that he was in fact from the future and had travelled back in time to warn authorities that interstellar colonists would soon be making a course for earth.
Claiming he had insider knowledge of an imminent alien invasion set to take place next year, Johnson advised police to leave as soon as possible.
He then asked to speak to the “president” of the town, explaining that he wanted to help warn others of the extraterrestrials’ arrival.
Johnson explained that his ability to time travel was due to the fact that aliens had filled his body with alcohol and instructed him to stand on a giant pad.
However the device apparently sent Johnson to the wrong point in time, with the time traveller lamenting to police that he had intended to show up in 2018, not 2017, for reasons known only to him.
