"LONDON (AFP) - A booze-fuelled Briton pretending to be Star Wars villain Darth Vader was punished Tuesday for a bizarre surprise attack on two Jedi fanatics.

Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27 -- who has a chronic alcohol problem -- donned a black bin bag for a cape and used a metal crutch for a lightsabre when he impersonated the Dark Lord of the Sith on March 25.

He then lept over the wall of a "Jedi Church" where Barney Jones and his cousin Michael were duelling with lightsabres while filming a documentary.

The fans of the Star Wars films established the "church" last year in Holyhead, northwest Wales.

Hughes hollered "Darth Vader" as he swung his crutch about, whacking Barney Jones over the head with it and punching Michael Jones in the thigh.

The Jedi are guardians of peace and justice, and the force was with them at Holyhead Magistrates' Court as district judge Andrew Shaw punished "Darth Vader" with a two-month suspended jail sentence and a 100-pound (195-dollar, 126-euro) fine.

Hughes got off lightly compared to the film version of Vader -- who had a hand chopped off by his son Luke Skywalker and was finished off by bolts of Force lightning from the evil Emperor Palpatine.

Hughes, who has previous convictions for assault, had drunk the best part of a 10-litre box of wine and could not remember the attack, his lawyer Frances Jones told the court."

Here is the article I read. I seen this on another forum I visit and I'll say the same thing ... it doesn't phase me one bit.

A church based on the principals of the Jedi from Star Wars ... no different then the idiots who have a religion called Scientology based on a science fiction book by a duffus named Ron Hubbard. Heck we should ban together and create a religion based upon this website and see if we can get it registered so we don't have to pay any taxes ... anybody game?

What do these people expect? They are Jedi and who is their arch rival ... Darth Vader. So for Darth Vader to go over there and to kick some ass they should have no problems. Why didn't they use the force to save their butts? Big bunch of losers.

As for Darth Vader and the guy saying he doesn't remember because he drank so much box wine ... don't buy it. Just fess up and admit to calling the Jedi's bluff and have a good giggle about it. You have to pay one way or the other so might as well have some fun with it.

Honestly, that's the weirdest part of the article for me. Punching someone in the thigh? Really? You've got to be drunk to do that.

Anyone who belongs to a "Jedi church" deserves to get whacked over the head w/ a crutch (appropriate weapon).

GROW UP! IT'S JUST A MOVIE!

I dont think thats fair- i mean, if there were gangs of drunks dressed as Satan invading christian churches to beat up the worshippers, no one would be saying 'they got what they asked for', except maybe me, but I am warped and would find that highly amusing
