Star Wars comes to Holyhead as Darth Vader strikes back in Jedi's back garden

A Star Wars fan got closer to his idols than he would perhaps have liked when he was attacked in his garden by Darth Vader.

Jedi Master Jonba Hehol - known to family and friends as Barney Jones, 36, of Holyhead - was giving a TV interview in his back garden for a documentary when a man, dressed in a black bin-bag and wearing Darth Vader's trademark shiny black helmet, leapt over his garden fence.

Wielding a metal crutch - his lightsaber presumably being in for repairs - the Sith Lord proceeded to lay about his opponent, whose Jedi powers proved inadequate for the task of defending himself.

After besting Master Hehol in single combat, Vader, who The Sun reports was under the influence of alcohol, went on to assault the camera crew and a hairdresser.

Master Hehol, a hairdresser, who founded the first-ever British Jedi Church in loving homage to the world-famous science fiction franchise with his brother Daniel, was unimpressed by the revenge of the Sith.

"This wasn't a joke. This was serious," he said.

Police are investigating a claim of assault.

The Jedi "religion" was born as a joke in the 2001 census, when almost 400,000 people claimed to believe in the Jedi faith.

advertisementBased on the teachings of Yoda, the crinkly green dwarf of the films, the "church" has a branch in Florida and plans to open another in the Philippines.


What is the world coming to when religions made up from a film series are actually starting to war with each other in reality.
but was this guy the master or the apprentice? not the last of this we've heard...
that is the funniest thing ive read in months LOL
Begun, the Nerd War has.
Next thing you know, there'll be a Sith church started.
This is the greatest news story I've ever read. Only a cure for cancer can beat it.
Can't wait to see the Sith religion pop up and they can have awesomez battlez in the local softball league.
There is no mystical force but there is a force, its a good and evil balance and a way to channel energy's. its like meditation.

i guess its ok for people to believe in that
This must of been the work of the fabled geek/chav hybrid
Well sometimes I think there is something out there in all of us that drives us to do something - that makes us all do something - whatever that is, it leads us. Guides us to wherever it is on what path we choose to follow in our lives.
I think Jedis are trying to beat out Scientologists for the "wackiest cult" title.
Explains the breathing problem, AMIRIGHT!?
