I’m afraid that police don’t generally release the names of people who make 911 calls, so I don’t know who to blame for this.
Last weekend, the Ramada Inn in Janesville, Wis., held a Star Wars convention. As you can imagine, people showed up in full costume for the event.
One of the vendors came fully dressed as a Stormtrooper.
Police responded to an armed robbery call at the hotel from today’s Stupid Person of the Day, who obviously missed the big sign out front about the convention, but who can hardly be forgiven for missing everyone else in the hotel in Star Wars dress.
The alleged suspect was dressed as a Stormtrooper, a soldier for the Galactic Empire in the science fiction movie series “Star Wars.’
“Apparently some people who saw him felt there was a threat,’ said Sgt. Kay Nikolaus of the Janesville Police Department.
The Stormtrooper was really a vendor participating in the weekend convention, held annually at the Ramada Inn, said Joann Lewandowski, who lives with event organizer Ray Norton. — Janesville Gazette
Next time you see Stormtroopers at a Star Wars convention, call Luke Skywalker, not the police.
