Obiwan Kenobi Involved in Hit-and-Run Accident
If you’re sensing a disturbance in the force, you may be picking up on Roseville, California. That’s where Obiwan Kenobi was arrested for fleeing (possibly to Tatooine) the scene of a five-car pileup.
Born Benjamin Cale Feit, the man legally changed his name to Obiwan Kenobi in 1999 for a radio contest. We assume he dropped the hyphen to differentiate himself, per SAG standards, from the Jedi master Obi-Wan. He currently goes by Ben, anyway.
Kenobi was released from custody after being arrested for allegedly causing a March 19 chain-reaction car accident. The 37-year-old man was released on bail and placed “on electronic monitoring,” according to a Placer County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson. His record also included an outstanding warrant for petty theft. There was no mention of Jedi mind trickery or maiming by lightsaber.
Couldn’t he just use ‘The Force’ to get out of jail? Couldn’t he just use ‘The Force’ to make us stop with these terrible Star Wars references and puns? What haven’t we used yet? Oh, right, Yoda voice. “Driver bad this one.” How’s that?
Somewhere Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop is breathing a sigh of relief.
