‘Obiwan Kenobi’ Arrested In Hit-And-Run Accident

ROSEVILLE, Calif. (CBS Las Vegas) – The force is not strong with this one.

The Press Tribune in Roseville is reporting that a man sharing a name with famed “Star Wars” character Obi-Wan Kenobi was arrested this past weekend in connection with a hit-and-run accident.

On March 19, 37-year-old Obiwan Kenobi was reportedly involved in a five-car crash.

The investigation, conducted by the Roseville police, revealed that a green Sedan believed to be Kenobi’s was responsible for the chain-reaction accident.

Several people involved complained of pain after the collision.

Witness testimony and a thorough investigation of the scene led them to Kenobi, who was found Saturday and arrested at his home. Kenobi was also arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant in Placer County.

Kenobi was allegedly born Benjamin Cale Feit, and changed his name in 1999 after a local radio station offered $1,000 to the first person who showed up at their studio with a legal document that showed their name to be Obiwan Kenobi.

He is reportedly being held in Placer Count Jail in lieu of a $17,500 bail.
