Darth Vader robs bank in Ohio, escapes on BMX bike

Darth Vader is no stranger to run-ins with the law, whether heisting banks in Long Island, participating in dubiously conceived Ukrainian land use legislation, or receiving parking tickets in Brooklyn.


But in Toledo, Ohio Wednesday afternoon, the Sith Lord robbed a bank yet again. Perhaps the most curious detail from this incident was the glimmer of a nascent Imperial velocipede program. ("After getting an undisclosed amount of money, he fled the scene using a dark colored BMX bike.") We'd have figured he'd written off that mode of transportation after some withering words from Freddie Mercury.

The police have the age of the perp all wrong. "A black male in his 20's?" Sorry, but no way James Earl Jones could pass for 20-something.
