Flying under the radar with a name like Obiwan Kenobi is probably a hard thing to do. Even with the power of jedi mind tricks, which apparently this Obiwan Kenobi does not have.
ROSEVILLE, Calif. (KCRA) — Jedi-mind tricks apparently weren’t enough to keep Obiwan Kenobi out of the Placer County Jail.Roseville police said that over the weekend they arrested a 37-year-old with the same name as the Star Wars character on suspicion of hit-and-run causing injury. Kenobi was also wanted on an unrelated charge of petty theft, authorities said.Kenobi was arrested in connection with a five-vehicle crash that took place March 19 at Fairway and Rosehall drives.Officers said that three vehicles were stopped in the straight-ahead lane of westbound Fairway 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. The crash set off a chain-reaction, causing two other vehicle to be hit.
