A Man is Busted for Attacking Shoppers at a Toys 'R' Us With a Plastic Light Saber . . . Then Using It to Fight Off a Police Taser
It's sad to see someone go over to the dark side like this, when The Force was so strong in them. It happened to Darth Vader . . . and now it's happened to 33-year-old David Canterbury of Hillsboro, Oregon.
--On Wednesday night, around 9:50 P.M., police in Portland, Oregon got a call from a Toys 'R' Us. David was inside the store, he had a plastic "Star Wars" LIGHT SABER in his hand . . . and he was ATTACKING PEOPLE with it.
--When the police got there, David kept on swinging the light saber at them to keep them away.
--They tried to Tase him . . . and that's where The Force came in: David used the light saber to swat one of the wires away and keep himself from getting shocked.
--Finally, they just charged in and tackled him. I guess they realized it wasn't a real light saber and it was made of plastic.
--David will be facing three assault charges, a theft charge, and a resisting arrest charge . . . but only after he undergoes a mental health evaluation.
--Fortunately, none of the people he attacked with the light saber needed medical attention.
