- Bryant Johnson told Casper, Wyoming police he was from the year 2048
- He said he wanted to speak to the "president of the town"
- He claimed his being drunk was the only way he could travel back to the future
Was a drunken man arrested by cops in Casper, Wyoming really from the future? He claimed to be and said he traveled from the year 2048 to warn our doomed civilization about the imminent arrival of aliens.
Bryant Johnson tried to caution humanity of what was to come and was so worried about the future that he told the police it was imperative that he speaks to the “president of the town” of Casper, which lies about 170 miles (270 kilometers) northwest of Cheyenne.
Cops didn’t buy his story and busted Johnson, whose bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and blood-alcohol reading that exceeded legal limits gave him away. However, the alleged time-traveler said he had a perfectly good reason for being trashed—it was the only way the aliens could send him back to his time, by filling his body with alcohol and making him stand on a giant pad. Besides, it was all a big understanding—he came back to the wrong year anyway. Oops!
“[He] claimed he was from the year 2048 and was trying to warn the people of Casper that aliens were coming next year, and they should leave as soon as possible,” a local station, KTWO-AM, notes. “Johnson told police the only way he was able to time travel was to have aliens fill his body with alcohol and have him stand on a giant pad which transported him to 2017, but he ended up in the wrong year, and was supposed to be in 2018.” (Don’t you hate when that happens?)
Johnson had a blood alcohol content of .136, according to an early breath sample, well above the legal driving limit of .08. Afterward, it was determined that he could not take care of himself and was taken to the hospital where he caused a disturbance in the emergency room.
