‘Obiwan Kenobi’ Arrested for Hit-and-Run
Here’s a warning: If you change your name to that of an iconic movie character, you better not go out and commit crimes. Because if you do, we will post your driver’s license on this site for all to see.
Meet “Obiwan Kenobi.” Or, as some of his friends call him, “Ben.” The force was decidedly not with the 37-year-old when he was involved in a five car accident in Roseville, CA, back in March.
Kenobi fled the scene, but police finally caught up with him at his home over the weekend. He is now being held in the Placer County Jail on charges of hit-and-run.
While nobody was seriously injured in the crash, police say two of the other motorists did complain of pain after the incident. No word on whether the injuries were lightsaber-related.
