Guy gets arrested after punching Darth Vader's wife in the face

A long time ago (Sept. 20, 2012), in a galaxy far, far away (England), some dude socked Anakin's Padme right in the kisser. Cue the John Williams fanfare ...

It's a story more captivating than the entirety of the prequels. 35-year-old Ikbal Hare found himself on the wrong side of the force (the police force, that is) when he became violent after accusing the Sith Lord of sexing his girlfriend.

Darth Vader (yes, that is his actual name, as he legally changed it years ago from Mark Nokes) was apparently all too eager to engage Hare, when his wife, Mrs. Vader (seriously), attempted to intervene to calm things down. That's when Hare, in an act of haste, accidentally whacked the innocent woman instead of his intended target.

Hare then, allegedly, picked up a brick and threw some sand in the Dark Father's face. The Lady Vader attempted to keep her husband locked up at home, only to have him slip out the window after hearing Hare had armed himself with a knife, which we understand to be the poor man's answer to a lightsaber.

Although Darth failed to chase Hare down, the police did eventually do their storm-trooperly duty by detaining Hare two days later.

With 200 hours of unpaid work and court-ordered anger management, Hare has finally learned what Star Wars fans the world over have known for decades—don't #@%! with Darth Vader ... or his wife.
