We’ve heard many excuses for bad behavior, but a time-traveling alien from another planet is probably one of the most amusing ones to pop up recently. Police in Oklahoma City say a man accused of jumping over a counter at Arby’s to steal food and breaking a glass door on his way out claimed he was visiting from another planet, four years in the future.

On that planet, traveling through time to steal food from other worlds is apparently a popular way to dine out. The time traveler’s journey started on the morning of April 15, when Carl’s Jr. workers said the man walked into the restaurant and started screaming and demanding food, reports WWMT.com.

After employees managed to get him out of the restaurant, police say he walked across the street to Arby’s.

The Arby’s manager told police that the man had jumped on the front counter and demanded food, before hopping into the kitchen and grabbing her, forcing her toward a wall. She said the suspect then allegedly grabbed a handful of bacon and chicken and walked out of the restaurant, breaking a glass door on his way. He continued his alleged alien rampage outside, where witnesses say he kicked and damaged several vehicles while chomping on bacon.

When police arrived on the scene to arrest him, he allegedly told officers that he is “four years advanced” and that on his planet, “everyone is dead.”

Police said he could’ve been on something that affected his behavior —— which could explain his explanation for his alleged crimes.

“He was possibly under the influence of some sort of narcotic or intoxicant, or suffering from some type of break with reality. He did mention that he is from four years in the future and that is how people will get food during that period of time,” a police representative said.

He’s facing charges including robbery force or fear, assault and battery, and destruction of property.
