Weird News: Oregon man arrested for Lightsaber assault


Police arrested a man at a Portland Tos R Us on Wednesday after he allegedly assaulted three people with a blue light saber. The 33-year-old was taken for a mental evaluation. According to OregonLive.com:


Officers tried to arrest the man, but he kept swinging the light saber at them, Simpson said. One tried to use his Taser on the suspect but the device didn’t work. Another officer used his Taser and made contact, but the man knocked one of the wires away with the light saber. The officers finally arrested the man after grabbing him and pinning him to the ground.
