DUBAI: A man in America was arrested after claiming he had traveled back in time from the year 2048 to warn of an alien invasion – sometime next year.
Police were called after Bryant Johnson demanded to speak to local government officials, having claimed he had just arrived from the future – although he claimed he arrived a year earlier than intended.
Johnson told officials – according to an arrest report obtained by the Huffington Post — that “aliens were coming next year and we needed to make sure to leave as fast as possible.”

He told police he had been able to time travel because aliens had filled his body with alcohol.
He added that he used a “giant pad” to transport him through time.
Johnson refused to speak to medical personnel, but demanded to meet with the “president” of the town.
It is understood that police were not entirely convinced by Johnson’s claims and it was later reported that he had “watery bloodshot eyes.” Police also said they could smell alcohol and that Johnson’s speech was slurred and he had a blood alcohol content of 136 percent.
While it doesn’t appear law enforcement believe Johnson’s claims hold water, commenters had plenty to say on Facebook.
No one commented on whether Johnson’s story was confirmed, but he was arrested for public intoxication.
