Darth Vader attacks new Jedi church in U.K.



Tbddarthvader042408 A man posing as Darth Vader attacked a Star Wars fan who had founded a Jedi church in Britain, the BBC reports. Arwel Hughes, 27, from Holyhead, told a court he was drunk when he jumped over a garden wall wearing a black garbage bag and a cape, and shouting "Darth Vader!"

He admitted hitting Barney Jones with a metal crutch. A prosecutor said Jones had recently started the Jedi church, and it had about 30 members. Jones and his cousin had been filming themselves playing with lightsabers in the garden before the attack.

Police said Hughes had drunk the best part of a 10-liter box of wine and could not remember the incident. We're surprised he remembered who Darth Vader was.
