Lights in the Sky

Police responding to a “shots fired” call in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisc., found Daniel Collins, 36, carrying an unlicensed pistol. Collins was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of endangering safety with a firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He allegedly admitted he was shooting at street lights because, he says, he’s an extraterrestrial and he was trying to protect the universe from other aliens. “He was not a very good shot,” commented police Lt. Kevin Schwatz, “because he didn’t hit any of the lights.” (RC/WEOW Wausau) ...Yeah, but who knows how many space aliens he hit?
