“Buzzed” Man Claims Dr. Phil Warning of Alien Invasion as Reason for Speeding
We’re not making this stuff up folks!
SALISBURY – Using a high-pitched voice, television host Dr. Phil warned 21-year-old Rowan County resident Richard Blanscet that an alien invasion had begun near his home off Scout Road.
Anxious to save the life of his girlfriend, Blanscet left his home in his father’s 1997 Jaguar XK8 and went to “rescue” her.
At least that’s the story Blanscet told investigators after he crashed the Jaguar several times, while fleeing from deputies at speeds greater than 100 miles an hour.
Blanscet told deputies he had been smoking a “legal form of marijuana” called “Wicked X Herbal Smoke” when he had the dire warning from Dr. Phil.
The deputy’s account is somewhat different.
