Darth Vader’s Lightsaber Causes Bomb Scare

An old plastic lightsaber toy left on the side of the road in Alaska caused a bit of a bomb scare, prompting local police to call in their bomb expert.

Last week, an unidentified resident became very concerned over the object on the side of the road. Rather than call 911, the worried fellow called the Juneau Police Department's business line to report the mystery.

Not taking any chances, a brave member of the Juneau police department with explosive training was dispatched, and quickly realized he was sent to contain Darth Vader's harmless plastic lightsaber.

“It was not explosive in any way,” Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Erann Kalwara confirmed.

Had the lightsaber been real, the bomb specialist likely would have been severely maimed at the very least, as lightsabers can only be safely wielded by those strong with the force.
