Rubbish-bag Darth Vader evades capturehttp://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,23696644-13762,00.html A RUBBISH bag-clad Darth Vader has escaped a jail term for bashing a group of Welsh "Jedi Knights". Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, donned a cape made from a black rubbish bag and bashed Jedi church founder Barney Jones - aka Master Jonba Hehol - with a metal crutch, prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates Court . He also hit Mr Jones's 18-year-old cousin, Michael Jones - Master Mormi Hehol - in the March 25 incident, the Associated Press reported. The two cousins and Barney Jones's brother Daniel set up the Church of Jediism, Anglesey order, last year. Jedi is the faith followed by some of the central characters in the Star Wars films, with its members said to be endowed with special powers. Hughes's attack was recorded on a video camera that the Jedis had set up to film themselves in a light sabre battle. "Darth Vader! Jedis!'' Hughes shouted as he approached. Hughes said he couldn't remember the incident because he had drunk most of a 10 litre box of wine. "He knows his behaviour was wrong and didn't want it to happen but he has no recollection of it,'' Hughes's lawyer Frances Jones said. District Judge Andrew Shaw sentenced Hughes to two months in jail, suspended for a year. The Jedi order, which claims about 30 members, says on its website that it uses "insight and knowledge'' from the films as "a guide to living a better and more worthwhile life". "We all love the films and what they stand for. Obviously some people are going to laugh about it,'' the Wales on Sunday newspaper quoted Barney Jones as saying last month. "But a lot of people do take it seriously.'' In the 2001 United Kingdom census, 390,000 - 0.7 per cent of the population - listed Jedi as their religion.
