Vader Escapes Prison Sentence!

I'm sure you remember the vicious attack by Lord Darth Vader against Jedi Master Jonba Hehol in Hollyhead earlier in the year.

It emerged recently that Arwel Wynne Hughes the 27-year-old who dressed in a black bin-bag and Darth Vader's black helmet and leapt over a garden fence in Holyhead and proceeded to attack two Star Wars fans with a metal crutch, was given a suspended sentence at Holyhead Magistrates Court.

"Darth Vader! Jedis!" Hughes shouted as he approached the Jedi church founder Master Jonba Hehol who was hit over the head and his 18-year-old cousin, Master Mormi Hehol who suffered a bruised thigh in the March 25 attack.

Hughes claimed he couldn't remember the incident, having drunk the best part of a 10-litre box of wine beforehand. But the incident was recorded on a video camera that the cousins had set up to film themselves in a light saber battle. District Judge Andrew Shaw sentenced Hughes to two months in jail but suspended the sentence for one year and ordered Hughes to pay £100 to each of his victims and £60 in court costs.
