On March 25, Arwel Hughes, 27, of Holyhead, UK, assaulted two members of the Jedi faith church who were holding mock lightsaber duels in a garden. Hughes, wearing a black plastic garbage bag and screaming "Darth Vader," jumped a fence and hit Barney Jones and Michael Jones in the head and leg, respectively. The incident was captured on video. Hughes was fined and given a suspended jail sentence. From the BBC News:
Hughes told police he had no memory of the incident as he was drunk.
District Judge Andrew Straw said the publicity his case had received was perhaps a good thing, and a "wake up call" to deal with his alcohol problem.
