Jedis Attacked By Darth Vader

Just read this story and made myself laugh so hard I sprayed coffee out my mouth.

If you are interested, it was this particular section*:
Hughes, who was drunk and dressed in a black bin bag, shouted "Darth Vader!"

It's a lovely image, isn't it? A drunk man "dressed" in a bin bag - but with matching cape, apparently - jumping over a fence to attack two grown men (who were filming themselves playing with lightsabres, let's not forget) with a metal crutch.

I say "attack", all he managed to do was give one of them a headache and the other one a bruise, so it's hardly going to cause much of a disturbance in the force, is it?

It gets better though, the drunken man was late arriving to the trial. Possibly having some trouble getting his bin bags back from the dry cleaners, or something.
Earlier, when Hughes failed to arrive on time, District Judge Andrew Shaw issued an arrest warrant, adding: "I hope the force will soon be with him."

Top punnery from a judge there!

* - Although the sentence "alcohol was "ruining his life" and he had no idea where he got the crutch from" does come a close second.
