Fear leads to anger, anger leads to jail time: US man jailed for attacking police with light sabers

PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) - An Oregon judge is using his force to order a 45-day jail sentence and mental health evaluation for a would-be Jedi who attacked toy store customers with light sabres last December. David Allen Canterbury told Judge Kenneth Walker that he is already seeking mental health treatment. Canterbury also apologised to his victims. The Oregonian reports that the 33-year-old Canterbury pleaded no contest on Monday to assault and resisting arrest. Portland police say Canterbury had a Star Wars light sabre in each hand as he swung at three customers last Dec. 14 at a Toys R Us store. He carried the light sabers outside the store and swung at police. Officers eventually wrestled him to the ground. Canterbury has been banned from the toy store.
