By Moody Adams HOLYHEAD, Wales: A man who dressed up as Darth Vader, wearing a garbage bag for a cape, and assaulted the founders of a group calling itself the Jedi church was given a suspended sentence Tuesday” reports the Iernational Herald Tribune, USA
“Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, attacked Jedi church founder Barney Jones — aka Master Jonba Hehol — with a metal crutch, hitting him on the head, prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates’ Court… The group, which claims about 30 members, says on its Web site that it uses “insight and knowledge” from the films as “a guide to living a better and more worthwhile life.”
The attack was recorded on a video camera that they had set up to film themselves in a light saber battle.
Hughes claimed he couldn’t remember the incident, having drunk the better part of a 2 1/2-gallon box of wine beforehand.
District Judge Andrew Shaw sentenced Hughes to two months in jail but suspended the sentence for one year. He also ordered Hughes to pay 100 pounds (US$195; €126) to each of his victims and 60 pounds (US$117; €76) in court costs.
Jesus said, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:11), but who would have thought it would have gone this far?
