Man Convicted of Punching Darth Vader's Wife

Yes, really! A man in Walsall, UK threw a punch at Darth Vader, missed and hit Vader's wife instead:

The blow thrown by Ikbal Hare, 35, of Miner Street, Walsall missed, but hit the wife of Star Wars fan Mr Vader, who had changed his name from Mark Nokes by deed poll for charity more than years ago. 

Prosecutor Tim Sapwell told Wolverhampton Crown Court Mrs Vader was struck on the right cheek during the row.

He said police were called out to an alleged domestic dispute involving Hare and his girlfriend Kerry Campbell. 

Mrs Vader, who changed her name along with her husband, knew the couple as neighbours and Hare revealed he suspected Mr Vader had been romancing Miss Campbell. 

Well, Hare was defending his honor. That's understandable. Still, he was lucky to get off with 18 months of supervision instead of being Force-choked on the spot.
