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.
He says the aliens were coming through his electronics in his home. After he slammed down two phones, pulled the smoke detector off the wall and turned off the televison, he left the home. He stepped outside and believed he saw and heard a helicopter - which he believed to be aliens coming after him.
When he saw the blue lights from the deputy's cruiser during the chase, he says he also believed that to be the 'aliens.'
"I wasn't high," he told WBTV on Thursday. "This was reality to me."
