Darth Vader’s Wife has been punched in the face. Darth Vadar’s wife has been punched in the face. Okay, now we’ll drop the act; the wife of a man who legally changed his name to 'Darth Vader’ got punched in the face.
According to The Huffington Post, Ikbal Hare, 35, was arrested in Walsall for the assault, which began on Sept. 20 when he believed that Vader - who changed his name from Mark Nokes years ago, was engaging in the dark side with his wife. He confronted Mr. Vader and took a swing, but, his wife took a hook to the face for her troubles. Ouch. Hare then legged it – possibly fearing the ruthless henchman of Emperor Palpatine – but was apprehended days after by police, and was sentenced to 18 months of community service and forced to enter an anger management regime. He will also have to do 200 hours of community service, trawling through robot parts on Tataouine for his ill-thought attack on the Sith Lord’s better half.
Just goes to show: you cannot go around punching people in the face, let alone the Sith flippin’ Lord! Oh, and also, he doesn’t really have to do 200 hours on Tataouine; it’s just boring old community service on earth.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
