Wednesday's Quote of the Day
"I hope the force will soon be with him" - Judge issuing arrest warrant for man due in court on charges of assault while dressed as Darth Vader.
When Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, of Anglesey, failed to show up in court on time, District Judge Andrew Shaw issued an arrest warrant and this witty aside. Once in court, Hughes admitted assaulting two Star Wars fans with a metal crutch, an attack he carried out while dressed in a black bin bag and shouting "Darth Vader". The pair, who recently founded a Jedi Church in the area, had been playing with light sabres in the garden when Hughes jumped over the wall, drunk and in costume. They suffered minor injuries.
