A UFO film crew was detained for several hours at gunpoint, after sneaking into Area 51 for a BBC documentary.
Military personnel arrested a BBC film crew at the secret Area 51 military base in Nevada where UFO conspiracy theorists claim US authorities are keeping bodies of aliens and debris of an ET “flying disc” that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
The crew was trying to sneak into the base while filming a BBC documentary “UFO: Conspiracy Road Trip,” to be aired Monday.
According the Daily Mail, the 12-member film crew included Irish comedian Andre Maxwell and UFO conspiracy theorist Darren Perks.
They were arrested after they had sneaked past the security perimeter, and were forced to lie on the ground for three hours while officials at the base carried out identification checks.
According to Darren Perks, the crew was touring California, Arizona and Nevada with Andre Maxwell and four other UFO enthusiasts. They visited Area 51 to do a night watch to see if they could film anything unusual. According to Darren, the crew arrived at the base on May 14 at about 5 p.m.
