A British citizen was arrested recently after punching another man’s wife in the face.
A man whose name was legally changed to Darth Vader years ago. Obviously.
Ikbal Hare threw a punch at Vader, who is of no relation to the iconic Star Wars character pictured above, after he suspected him of romancing Hare’s wife.
He missed and connected with Mrs. Vader, according to the Wolverhampton Crown Court.
Hare ran off, but was captured days later. The Force was not strong with him, apparently.
In court today, he pleaded guilty to the attack and must spend 18 months on probation and go to anger management. He will also perform 200 hours of unpaid work.
Prosecutor Tim Sapwell told the court yesterday that Mrs. Vader first asked her husband about the allegation, which he vehemently denied before confronting Hare.
“There was a scuffle involving the two men and Mrs Vader tried to get between them, he said. “The defendant struck her but there is evidence that, in fact, he had been trying to hit Darth Vader.”
Mr. Vader is understood to have changed his name to raise money for charity.
