"Darth Vader" attacks cop


ORLANDO (CNN) - Imagine being the cop to call this one in - an attack by Darth Vader.

Police in Orlando arrested a man wearing the Star Wars character mask early Thursday morning.

An officer says the 28-year-old man was apparently drunk and walking in the middle of a street. When he was asked to move, he laid down in the road instead.

The officer says when the man tried to punch and kick him, he used his Taser. But, the "force," or the man's heavy jacket, protected him.

Eventually, pepper spray got the man in line. He now faces felony charges of resisting arrest and battery on an officer.
