OT: Fun and interesting news stories.

Rules are simple. I'll start by posting a fun and interesting news story. You can reply with one of your own as long as it isn't X-Rated material. Have fun guys!

I'll start!

A 33-year-old man who struck customers with light sabers at the Toys R Us at Hayden Island has been sentenced to 45 days jail and possible mental-health treatment.

David Allen Canterbury told Judge Kenneth Walker that he is already seeking mental-health treatment. Canterbury also apologized to his victims.

Portland police said Canterbury swung the Star Wars sabers — one in each hand — at three customers on Dec. 14 at about 9:50 p.m. at the store at 1800 Jantzen Beach Center. He then carried the light sabers outside the store and swung at police. Officers tried to use a Taser to subdue him, but Canterbury successfully deflected one of the wires away.

Police eventually wrestled him to the ground before taking him into custody.

Today in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Canterbury pleaded no contest to fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest. The judge dismissed charges of interfering with a police officer, theft and disorderly conduct. The judge also sentenced Canterbury to two years of probation and a mental-health evaluation that could call for treatment.

Canterbury has been banned from Toys R Us. The judge did not give him additional time for violating the terms of his probation for a previous heroin-possession conviction.
