CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – An Ocala man on a mission “to tell the government” that U.S. aliens were fighting Chinese dragons was arrested Friday after he attempted to enter Patrick Space Force Base in a stolen pickup truck, according to Brevard sheriff’s officials.

According to a Brevard County Sheriff’s Office probable cause affidavit, the 29-year-old man stole a Ford F-150 last Tuesday because “the president of the United States told him in his head he needed to take the vehicle.”

The man then drove to Brevard County and attempted to get on the base, the affidavit stated.

Authorities said they later leaned that the pickup was stolen from Riviera Beach in Palm Beach County, about 125 miles south of Patrick Space Force Base.

The man was arrested on charges of grand theft of a motor vehicle.

No other details have been released.
