Founding a new religion can be a bit rough, apparently. But then, when you base your liturgy on the teachings of a movie prop puppet what can you expect? Yes, Jonba Hehol was finally attacked by a badly-dressed Darth Vader impersonator. One wielding a metal crutch instead of a light saber.
A judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of a Darth Vader impersonator who allegedly attacked two Star Wars fans in their own back garden.
Arwel Wynne Jones, who was dressed in a black bin liner and shiny black helmet, is accused of assaulting Barney and Michael Jones while they were being interviewed for a TV documentary about their love of the films.
Barney Jones (or, as he styles himself for his priestly duties, Jonba Hehol) is one of the founders of the British Jedi Church – which I have posted about before. To update my conclusion about the last post, not only is said Jedi priest seriously in need of a life, it would appear he could also use a good suit of full plate armor.
It's not easy being a puppet messiah.
