A 33-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night for assaulting people with a lightsaber at an Oregon Toys R Us. Apparently he was not without some skill:
Officers tried to arrest the man, but he kept swinging the light saber at them, Simpson said. One tried to use his Taser on the suspect but the device didn’t work.
Another officer used his Taser and made contact, but the man knocked one of the wires away with the light saber.
The man was arrested and taken to the hospital for a “mental evaluation.” None of his victims required medial attention, but the ‘Jedi’ faces criminal charges. (via)
