Judge issues arrest warrant for Darth Vader

'I hope the force will soon be with him'

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

A judge has demanded a Darth Vader impersonator be dragged before him after he succumbed to the Dark Side, attacked two Jedi with a metal crutch, and failed to show up for the resulting court appearance on an assault rap.

According to the Telegraph, Arwel Wynne Jones interrupted an outdoors TV interview* with brothers Barney and Michael Jones - the former aka Jedi Master Jonba Heho and founder of the UK's Jedi Church - by jumping over a garden fence in Holyhead dressed in a black bin liner and "shiny black helmet" while shouting "Darth Vader" and quickly getting busy with the aforementioned crutch.

However, although Wynne Jones intially turned up at court earlier this week to receive justice, by the time his case was up he'd disappeared. Accordingly, District Judge Andrew Shaw ordered police to hunt down the miscreant, and concluded: "I hope the force will soon be with him." ®
