United Press International (article excerpt) - December 16, 2011
Police in Oregon said they arrested a man accused of assaulting fellow Toys R Us customers with a toy light saber.
Portland police said officers responded to the store at 9:51 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a man attacking customers with the "Star Wars" toy, and they arrived to find the man swinging the light saber around in the parking lot and shouting incoherent statements.
An officer used a Taser on the man, but he was able to use the light saber to break one of the wires, police said. They said the man was tackled to the ground and continued to struggle while being taken into custody.
