I received the following sighting report this afternoon (Friday 25th):
In November, 1999 I was traveling on highway 377 from Granbury, TX. to Fort Worth, TX. where I was a deputy sheriff. It was about 0510. I was coming upon the town of Benbrook, TX. To my right I saw a reddish glowing light coming from the ground below some large power lines. I never did see an actual object. The unknown light source looked like it was beaming red laser beams in the air.
I had WBAP AM radio, 820 am freq, on waiting for the news. The announcer suddenly asked if anyone was near the town of Benbrook and had observed strange lights in the air please contact the station.
I got my cell phone and immediately called the station to report what I had seen. I didn't realize I was on live radio. As I explained to the announcer what I had just seen suddenly a sensation came over my body like warm oil being poured on me from my head to my toes. My Silverado pickup lost all electrical power. The engine shut down. I was able to coast off the highway to the side of the road.
My cell phone also went dead even though it was operating on it's own battery power. I felt numb all over and very confused. I remember looking at my watch to see if I had lost any time. Apparently I had not, but my watch had stopped running about the same time.
After about 10 minutes I was able to start my truck and continue to my job. I was still somewhat confused.
When I got to briefing that morning I got kidded by several deputies about seeing a UFO. Several were also listening to WBAP radio. I had never said anything on the radio about seeing a UFO.
That afternoon after work I called WBAP radio to see if they had determined what I had seen. The lady said they had several other witnesses but no one knew what it was. She said they had sent a spotter plane up to take pictures of this. This is the last I heard about this incident. It never came out in the local newspapers. Also, WBAP radio seem to lose interest in this right away...or could it be possible they were told not to report any more on the subject?
