Is this the real-life inspiration for “Rick and Morty” or does someone just have a really active imagination? A Wyoming man who was arrested for public intoxication insisted to police that he was a time traveler from the distant future who came back to 2017 to warn of an impending alien invasion. Spooky!
The spooky run-in took place in Casper, where police were dispatched at around 10:30 pm local time on Monday to deal with a drunken man ranting about the future, K2 Radio reported. There, they came across Bryant Johnson, who told the officers that he was from the year 2048 and have traveled backwards through time with a dire warning.
Aliens would be coming to the central Wyoming town next year, Johnson predicted, and all residents should pack up and leave as quickly as possible. When questioned further by confused police officers, Johnson demanded to speak to the president of the town.
As for how Johnson was able to laugh in the face of the laws of nature and accomplish time travel, he claimed that the only way he could do so was to have aliens fill his body with alcohol and transport him via a giant pad to the year he needed.
Not all went as planned: Johnson said that he meant to travel to 2018, but the aliens (not the dangerous ones, I guess?) messed up and sent him too far back in time.
Despite the severity of his warning, officers decided that Johnson’s bloodshot eyes and slurred speech were enough to haul him in. One breath sample clocked his BAC at 0.136, landing Johnson behind bars for public intoxication.
