As far as excuses for getting hammered go, this guy is a gold medalist. Bryant Johnson was drunk at a hospital in Casper, Wyoming on Monday night and he was causing a scene in the emergency room so the staff called the cops.

And the 27-year-old gave them a very reasonable explanation for what was going on.

He said he was from the year 2048, and he'd traveled back in time to warn everyone about an alien invasion. Oh, and the reason he was drunk is because those aliens had filled his body with alcohol.

He also demanded to speak to the "president of the town" and he said he was here by mistake, since he'd meant to go back to 2018, not 2017.

Even with all of those very specific details, the cops didn't heed his warning and instead, he was arrested for public intoxication. But if aliens with weaponized booze do invade this planet in 31 years, I think we'll all owe Bryant an apology.
