A 29-year-old Florida man, who drove a stolen pickup truck to Patrick Space Force Base in what he called a mission from the U.S. President, was arrested on Friday.

Corey Johnson, of Ocala, stole a Ford F-150 from Riviera Beach, Florida just three days before he headed to the Space Force Base in Brevard County, reported CBS42. When Johnson showed up at the military base, he shared with authorities that the President told him in his head that he needed to take the vehicle. He also said that the President told him to inform the government that "there were US aliens fighting Chinese dragons."

Fox 35 Orlando reported that on grand theft of a motor vehicle, he was taken into custody and booked into the Brevard County Jail. Later his bond was set at $3,000.

Patrick Space Force Base, which is located approximately 18 miles away from the Kennedy Space Center, is home to the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and Space Launch Delta 45. It is described as the premier launch delta of the new United States Space Force.

Some people took to social media to joke about the alien versus dragon fight. Some of them wondered who would win in the war, according to Indy100. One asked, "Okay, but who won?" The Twitter user explained that certainly the weaponry of dragons is "fairly well-established, unless they are like the ones in How To Train Your Dragon, with aliens being the wildcard (probably) possessing a pretty large technical advantage."

Another wrote won't we all be surprised when the "Dragon vs Alien fight shows up here on earth." A third Twitter user shared a link to the story and joked that the man "takes a car out of necessity to drive to space force to warn them of aliens and dragons and he's the bad guy here?"

Similar stories, involving stealing vehicle but no aliens or dragons, had popped up from Florida earlier. It was just last year that a man stole a police car. Then he fled and stole another police car. That man was later arrested and he faced charges related to grand theft of a motor vehicle.

UFO Festival

A highly awaited US intelligence report on dozens of mysterious unidentified flying object sightings said most could not be explained, but did not rule out that some could be alien spacecraft. The report made no mention of the possibility of -or rule out - that some of the objects sighted could represent extra-terrestrial life. The military and intelligence community have conducted research on them as a potential threat. Photo by Patrick T. Fallon/AFP via Getty Images
