Richard Donald Blanscet's Wednesday night antics should vault him to Internet stardom. Why? He got high on Mr. Nice Guy "synthetic marijuana" then hopped into his burgundy Jaguar to save his girlfriend from an alien invasion--after hearing Dr. Phil's voice in his head. Along the way he sparked a 120-mph police chase.

As a bonus, the chase led through the classic B-movie scenes: a cemetery, a church, and a field, before eventually ending in a crash at an intersection. Blanscet told police he didn't stop for the cars chasing him because when he saw the lights, he "realized the invasion was real and the cops were on it."
Moral of the story: don't listen to Dr. Phil.
