Stormtrooper at Star Wars con mistaken for armed robber

A vendor in a Stormtrooper suit (with a plastic laser gun) at a Star Wars con in Janesville, WI, was surrounded by police after someone called the police and said that there was an "armed robber" in fancy white armor at the local Ramada.

The alleged suspect was dressed as a Stormtrooper, a soldier for the Galactic Empire in the science fiction movie series "Star Wars."

"Apparently some people who saw him felt there was a threat," said Sgt. Kay Nikolaus of the Janesville Police Department.
