Strange but true.....

http://www.wral.com/news/strange/story/2876369/

HOLYHEAD, Wales — A
man who dressed up as Darth Vader, wearing a garbage bag for a cape,
and assaulted the founders of a group calling itself the Jedi church
was given a suspended sentence Tuesday.

Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, attacked Jedi church founder Barney Jones -
aka Master Jonba Hehol - with a metal crutch, hitting him on the head,
prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates' Court.

He also whacked Jones' 18-year-old cousin, Michael Jones - known as
Master Mormi Hehol - bruising his thigh in the March 25 incident,
prosecutors said.
The two cousins and Barney Jones' brother, Daniel, set up the Church
of Jediism, Anglesey order, last year. Jedi is the faith followed by
some of the central characters in the "Star Wars" films.

The group, which claims about 30 members, says on its Web site that
it uses "insight and knowledge" from the films as "a guide to living a
better and more worthwhile life."

"We all love the films and what they stand for. Obviously some
people are going to laugh about it," the Wales on Sunday newspaper
quoted Barney Jones as saying last month. "But a lot of people do take
it seriously."
Unfortunately for Hughes, his March attack was recorded on a video
camera that the cousins had set up to film themselves in a light saber
battle.
"Darth Vader! Jedis!" Hughes shouted as he approached.

Hughes claimed he couldn't remember the incident, having drunk the
better part of a 2 1/2-gallon (10-liter) box of wine beforehand.
"He knows his behavior was wrong and didn't want it to happen but he
has no recollection of it," said Hughes' lawyer, Frances Jones.

District Judge Andrew Shaw sentenced Hughes to two months in jail
but suspended the sentence for one year. He also ordered Hughes to pay
$195 to each of his victims and $117 in court costs.

In the 2001 United Kingdom census, 390,000 - 0.7 percent of the population - listed Jedi as their religion.

Sounds like a big promotional incident to me. Seeing that the injuries and the punishment were really of no real consequence, it even moreso looks like this was staged to draw attention to this Jedi "church".

Read through some of the stuff on their site. It just sounds like a new slant to introduce/mislead people with New Age dogma.

It would be hilariously funny, if they weren't leading people straight to hell.

There are a lot of practical jokers in the UK!
