Crime: Police arrested a 33-year-old man after he allegedly attacked shoppers at a Portland, Ore. Toys 'R' Us with a blue lightsaber toy. The dude apparently resisted arrest and managed to deflect a taser cable before getting tackled and taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation. I'm glad nobody was hurt, but also disappointed that I wasn't there to duel him as it happened at the very TRU I shop at! [Oregon Live]
