Man Arrested After Calling 911 To Alert Authorities About Alien Invasion
Meet James Fleurant.
The 28-year-old Florida Man was arrested early yesterday for misuse of the 911 system after he placed a bizarre 1:45AM call to the police emergency line.
Fleurant told an operator that he was “seeing aliens, little ones flying low to the ground,” according to an arrest affidavit.
The Vero Beach resident added that he did not want “to go Independence Day on them,” an apparent reference to the movie starring Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, and Bill Pullman.
In the 1996 film, an invasion by alien aircraft is repelled, but not before earthlings suffer widespread death and destruction (including the incineration of poor Harvey Fierstein).
Fleurant is locked up on $500 bond on the misdemeanor charge. His rap sheet includes convictions for battery, theft, and probation violation.
