The Chewbacca Defense

For real this time:

Person Dressed as Chewbacca Arrested in Hollywood

February 2, 2007 - Tourists on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got a shock when one of their favorite "Star Wars" characters was arrested by police on Thursday.

The LAPD says a person dressed as Chewbacca was arrested for head butting a tour guide, who told the character he shouldn't be asking a tourist for money.

This isn't the first time it's happened, someone playing Elmo was arrested last October along with Mr. Incredible, for allegedly bothering tourists for money.

Chewbacca's colleagues say he's has been causing trouble and that's bad for business.

The arrest comes after the LAPD warned costumed characters it would be cracking down on aggressive behavior.
