An Oregon man will be spending the next few weeks behind bars for getting out of hand at a Toys R Us. According to “The Oregonian,” David Allen Canterbury was in Multnomah County Circuit Court Monday where he pleaded no contest to fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest. Canterbury’s legal troubles started on December 14th when he swung light sabers at three customers in Toys R Us. Canterbury then ran outside and began swinging the light sabers at police. Officers tried to use a Taser on the 33-year-old, but he was able to deflect their shot with his light saber. Canterbury was eventually wrestled to the ground and taken into custody.
Canterbury is now sentenced to 45 days in jail, two years of probation, and a mental-health evaluation. On Monday, Canterbury said he’s already seeking mental-health treatment and apologized to the victims.
