Mesa County Sheriff Deputies spotted a "T-1000" model Terminator at a Grand Junction restaurant last Friday. Why did he travel back in time to visit a Western Colorado eatery?

According to Sheriff's Deputies, the "T-1000" was actually a pretty nice guy and joined the deputies for a friendly conversation. Furthermore, deputies report the "T-1000" rides a "sweet Harley."

In reality, the officers recognized actor Robert Patrick, star of the blockbuster movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day, as he enjoyed a nice lunch at a local restaurant.

Facebook chatter on the Mesa County Sheriff's Department site suggests Patrick has been seen frequently in Grand Junction. There has even mention he might be purchasing a home in the area.
