Fake Chewbacca Slapped With Real Handcuffs After Campaigning for Darth Vader (Video)

Man dressed as “Star Wars” character finds out the Force isn’t with him after violating Ukraine election law

Maybe he should’ve told the cops, “This isn’t the Wookiee you’re looking for.”

A man dressed as “Star Wars” character Chewbacca was arrested in Ukraine and fined after illegally campaigning for Darth Vader, the Irish Examiner reports.

The man had shown up at a polling station in Odessa to stump for Darth Vader as a mayoral candidate. Unfortunately, Ukraine law prohibits campaigning during election day.

The unnamed faux Wookiee didn’t go down without a fight — video of the arrest shows a group of policemen struggling to detain and eventually handcuff him. According to the Examiner, he was brought to court — in costume — and fined the equivalent of nearly $7 for the offense.

He probably should have waited until Halloween to bust out the Chewbacca costume.
