Montana ‘Star Wars Fan’ Arrested for Threat
People all over the universe are getting stoked for the release of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" this weekend. The excitement has been growing ever since they teased the sequel in the end of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Which, by the way, was released about 2 years ago today. The excitement over that movie was even more than most anticipated. Star Wars fans were over all the prequels, and looking forward to seeing what happens after "Return of the Jedi."
Maybe a little too excited.
Flashback to December 2015. Everyone was decorating their Christmas trees and hanging their lights. Maybe even doing some holiday shopping. Meanwhile, a Helena man got so upset that a friend on social media spoiled the plot, that he threatened to "shoot him."
According to Reuters
Police say Arthur Roy, of Helena, got “angry” with a student he had befriended on Facebook after the boy gave up a subplot to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” during an online conversation last week.
During the online fight that ensued, Roy is alleged to have posted a photo of himself in which he appears to brandish a gun, which he indicates is a Colt 1911 with a “hair trigger,” according to a probable cause affidavit.
And, on that note, I want to let everyone know that I have a rusty spoon that will be used to castrate anyone that spoils "The Last Jedi."
