BBC News reports that a man has been convicted of assaulting two cousins, one of whom had founded a “Jedi church”, while they were playing with light sabres in their garden. The villain posed as Darth Vader (well, he wore a bin bag), jumped over the wall and whacked the victims with a crutch.

Earlier, when [the accused] failed to arrive on time, District Judge Andrew Shaw issued an arrest warrant, adding: “I hope the force will soon be with him.”
