Would-be Sith Lord Assaults People with Lightsabers in Toys R Us

 |  |  |  |  |

A man armed with two lightsabers went a little crazy in Toys R Us in Hillsboro, Portland, Oregon. It’s not clear whether 33 year-old David Allen Canterbury, who assaulted people with toy lightsabers at Toys R Us, was working alone, or if he had a Sith Master. Always two there are.

Anyway, someone called 911. Officers tried to arrest the man, but he kept swinging the lightsabers at them. One tried to use his Taser but the device didn’t work. This was likely the result of his force powers. Another officer successfully used his Taser, but the lightsaber deflected the wires.

Eventually he was arrested and taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation. I have heard that some of the hospital staff claim to have seen him talking with holograms. I wonder if he was asking for Obi Wan Kenobi’s help.
