They're Lucky He Kept The Light Saber Off

Or Orlando would be missing a few cops today:

Police first saw David McCann, 30, standing in front of a bar Saturday at 2 a.m., shirt unbuttoned and yelling he was "Luke Skywalker" at passers-by, according to the incident report. An officer asked him to leave after McCann allegedly got into a verbal confrontation with two women over a bantha dating service.

McCann then allegedly charged the officer, who sprayed him in the face with an irritant. Two officers tried unsuccessfully to handcuff him as McCann wildly swung his fists, the report says.

The incident further escalated, with McCann continuing to allegedly attack officers after he was repeatedly kicked and struck with a baton. Officers also used a stun gun to attempt to subdue him.

"He continued to attack with super human strength and made no attempt to escape," according to the report. "The Force is strong in this one," said another officer.

Looks like he's out of work, though:

The Orange County Jedi Academy said McCann had worked there for two years, but the district already decided before the arrest not to renew his annual contract for next year.

Homeless Jedi are becoming a real problem in some parts of Florida.
