The force is not strong with this one.
The Press Tribune in Roseville is reporting that a man sharing a name with famed Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi was arrested this past weekend in connection with a hit-and-run accident.
On March 19, 37-year-old Obiwan Kenobi was reportedly involved in a five-car crash.
The investigation, conducted by the Roseville police, revealed that a green Sedan believed to be Kenobis was responsible for the chain-reaction accident.
Several people involved complained of pain after the collision.
Witness testimony and a thorough investigation of the scene led them to Kenobi, who was found Saturday and arrested at his home. Kenobi was also arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant in Placer County.
Kenobi was allegedly born Benjamin Cale Feit, and changed his name in 1999 after a local radio station offered $1,000 to the first person who showed up at their studio with a legal document that showed their name to be Obiwan Kenobi.
He is reportedly being held in Place Count Jail in lieu of a $17,500 bail.
This is not the hit-and-run driver you are looking for...
The fail is strong in this one...
I have a bad feeling about this...
I hate those imperial entanglements.
He should have looked for a faster ship ... one that could make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.
And his original name was Benjamin. Old Ben has been a crazy wizard ever since he went to live out beyond the dune sea.
His wiki needs to be updated with this arrest.
Did the cops shoot his dog, Auggie Ben Doggie?
And as Yoda warned the fictional Kenobi, “Told you I did. Reckless is he. Now, matters are worse.”
I saw the aftermath of the accident as I flew by in my ‘63 Ford Falcon. It’s the car that made the K-Mart run in less than 12 minutes.
“Benjamin Cale Feit”???
I bet he is distantly related to Boba and Jengo Fett!
I felt a great disturbance in the Force... as if tires of five cars screeched and were suddenly silenced.
Too bad this didn’t happen tomorrow because May 4th is Star Wars day!
I could have said, “May the Fourth be with you, always.”
Since he ran from the scene, does that make him an eVader?
In related news...
A lady claiming to be royalty tried to rob a dougnut shop asking for 2 large cinamon rolls. She placed them on each side on her head and ran out of the shop without paying. She was seen escaping in a white Falcon with a male driver and a very large, brown shaggy dog.
