Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera claimed he once saw a UFO while driving in the Bahama Banks while “high on ecstasy”.
The veteran Tory commentator’s revelation about driving under the influence came during a discussion of a House Intelligence Committee hearing into unidentified flying objects on Tuesday’s show of ‘The Five’.
“I’ve sailed around the world, I’ve seen lots of clear skies. I saw satellites, which are kind of scary, weather balloons, errant planes,” Rivera told his fellow panelists.
“The only time I saw a UFO, I was stoned with ecstasy,” he recalls. “It looked like a very large North Star, brighter than the North Star, it was just on the horizon so I tried to avoid it. I walked around it.
“Did you drive on ecstasy? interrupted the stunned co-host Emily Compagno.
“He kept following me and I went back the other way,” Rivera continued, ignoring the question. “It was right in front of me. He just followed me everywhere I went.
Rivera’s description of the incident suggested he was driving a boat, although that was unclear. He didn’t say when it happened.
