Obi Wan Kenobi just isn’t as heroic as he used to be…

Roseville, California police are revealing that over the weekend, they arrested a 37-year-old with the real legal name, Obi Wan Kenobi, on suspicion of hit-and-run causing injury.

Officers said that Kenobi was arrested in connection with a five-vehicle crash that took place March 19.  According to MSNBC, three vehicles were stopped in a straight-ahead lane when another vehicle stopped in the left-turn lane. A fifth vehicle, which was described as a green Toyota, collided with two cars it tried to merge between, setting off a chain-reaction that caused two other vehicles to be hit.

Police said the Toyota fled the area after the wreck.  An investigation led officers to Kenobi, who was arrested at his home this past Saturday.

Kenobi was also wanted on an unrelated charge of petty theft.  He is being held in the Placer County Jail on $17,500 bail.

No word on whether he was born with the name, or legally changed it himself due to a ridiculous love of STAR WARS.  Either way, you’re welcome for the smile you currently have on your face.
