Obiwan Kenobi Arrested, Charged With Hit & Run, Yes, This is a True Story

A 37 year-old man from Roseville, CA by the name of Obiwan Kenobi has been arrested and charged over a four car pile-up on a motorway last week.

Seems Kenobi, while driving, came across some cars backed up on the road. While trying to change lanes, he hit two of them then sped off, which went on to cause the pile-up.

He's been charged with hit-and-run causing injury, but is currently out on bail.

What reports fail to mention is why he's got that name. Did he change it because he was anxious to avoid any Imperial entanglements?
