Light saber toys have been a favorite of young boys and Star Wars fans alike since the movies came out. Lighting up, and sometimes even making noises, they are the most excited way to stage a “sword” fight, whether in your best friend’s basement or the middle of Wal-Mart. One man went a little too far with a light saber, and the police had to be called in.
He was harassing other customers with a light saber, a blue one, as the police reported. He attacked at least three other customers with the children’s toy. The police arrived to find the man waving the light saber around, swinging it all around the store. Their first attempt to use a Taser didn’t work, and the man broke the wire of the second Taser with his light saber.
The police finally took him down, still mumbling. The man was found to be David Allen Canterbury, a 33-year-old from Hillsboro, Oregon. He was taken to the hospital to be checked for mental issues. He has received citations for assault, disorderly conduct, theft, resisting arrest, and interfering with a police officer.
