Police arrested a man who allegedly assaulted three people with a blue light saber at a Hayden Island Toys R Us Wednesday night.

A 9-1-1 caller reported the incident about 9:50 p.m. and said the man was inside the store, 1800 Jantzen Beach Center, swinging the "Star Wars" weapon of choice at customers, said Sgt. Pete Simpson, a spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau. While the caller was on the phone, the man then left the store — light saber in hand — and walked out to the parking lot.

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 officers finally arrested the man after grabbing him and pinning him to the ground. The suspect, identified only as a 33-year-old Hillsboro man, was treated by medics at the scene and taken to an area hospital for a mental evaluation. He faces "several criminal charges" after he is evaluated, Simpson said.

None of the victims of the light saber assault needed medical attention, Simpson said.

It's a toy. Grab it out of his hand and chuck it away. Then tell him to stop acting like he's five.

LOL

I wonder if he was put up to it, or just kind of out of it


It is interesting to note that While I was in basic, we were told we could go to any religious establishment and they named several, lets say, unorthodox religions. One of them was for Jedi's and somewhere in or around San Antonio, there is a chapter.

Since it was not something I chose to believe in, I didn't go. I did think about going just to see what it was about though.
