Man Attacks Toy Store With Light Sabers
At some point in your adult life, chances are that you’ve seen a Star Wars lightsaber, picked it up, and swung it like a true Jedi. A guy in Oregon took that one step further in December and attacked some customers at a toy store with a couple of them.
It’s not clear as to why David Allen Canterbury decided he needed to wipe out three customers, but he held two of the lightsabers and started swinging. The cops were called, and Canterbury burst from the store, lightsabers still in his hands, and proceeded to swing at the cops.
For the record, cops aren’t scared of toy lightsabers.
The police tried to taser Canterbury, and he succeeded in batting away one of the lines with his weapon. He was subdued, however, and brought before a judge.
Now he’s been ordered 45 days in jail and a psych evaluation, in addition to being banned from the toy store. I wonder if the judge looked at him, waved his hand, and said, “These are not the droids you’re looking for.”
