Darth Vader Tasered and Pepper Sprayed In Orlando

Darth Vader is roaming the streets of Orlando, and it’s not even time for Star Wars Celebration VI yet. An intoxicated man (it’s shocking that alcohol was involved) wearing a Darth Vader mask attacked a Florida Highway Patrol trooper early on Thursday. He was walking in the middle of the road and when the trooper asked him to move he cursed and laid in the roadway instead. He refused to move so the trooper turned to alternative methods:

The trooper then told Cole to get up, but he attemtped to punch and kick the trooper, who deployed his Taser, according to the FHP.  Officials said Cole’s thick jacket prevented the Taser from working, so the trooper used pepper spray to subdue him.

Why do they always choose a Darth Vader mask?
