According to a story circulating in the UFO and alien conspiracy theory blogosphere, a British Police Sergeant had an encounter with Tall White Aliens on July 6, 2009. The aliens were allegedly inspecting a freshly-made crop circle in a field in Wiltshire, England, when the police officer, who was off-duty at the time, encountered them.
The mystery of the incident was reportedly compounded by the refusal of Wiltshire Police to comment when contacted by local UFO and paranormal investigators. A police spokesperson reportedly said the authorities could not comment on the incident because it was a "personal matter," according to the paranormal blog Tales from Out There.
"The police officer was apparently off duty when this happened so we have no comment to make because it is a personal not a police matter."
