Let the Wookie Win!

First it’s the ‘Adult Swim Terrorism’ story and now it’s come to this:

Chewbacca strikes back; performer accused of battery

“A man dressed as Chewbacca was arrested after police said the street performer head-butted a tour guide operator in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Frederick Evan Young, 44, of Los Angeles, California, was booked Thursday for investigation of misdemeanor battery, police Lt. Paul Vernon said. Police said the 6-foot-4 street performer was seen arguing Thursday afternoon with a tour guide who had expressed concern that the Star Wars wookie impersonator was “harassing and touching tourists” in violation of city law.”

…my favorite quote from this story was “You can’t tell this wookie what to do!” You have to admire an actor that stays in character!
