Police Break-up Brawl at Sci-Fi Convention, Three Light Sabers Bent Beyond Repair

Usually, when police break up gang fights, the brawlers aren’t reaching for asthma inhalers. Not the case at a recent sci-fi convention.

It happened this last weekend in England when the Jedi of the Norwich “Star Wars” Club was putting on a convention and film festival. The Norwich “Sci-Fi” Club showed up wanting to meet and get autographs with guest of the convention, Dr. Who actor Graham Cole.

Members of the two clubs started arguing, then a fight broke out… (are you picturing a Star Wars barroom scene?)… Police had to be called in to break it up. There were no arrests, and no word on how many people were actually involved, but three light sabers were bent so far that the plastic was creased, so they were basically ruined.
