Obiwan Kenobi arrested in Roseville hit-and-run
(KCRA)-- Jedi-mind tricks were not enough to keep Obiwan Kenobi out of the Placer County Jail.
Roseville police arrested the 37-year-old man, whose legal name is the same as the Jedi master Star Wars movie character, on suspicion of causing a hit-and-run crash.
Investigators believe he was driving a green Toyota when he caused a five-vehicle crash on March 19 in Roseville.
Three vehicles were stopped in a straight-ahead lane on Fairway Drive when another vehicle stopped in the left-turn lane. The Toyota collided with two cars it tried to merge between. The crash set off a chain-reaction, causing two other vehicle to be hit.
Police said the Toyota fled the area after the wreck that caused multiple injuries.
An investigation led officers to Kenobi, who was arrested at his home on Saturday and booked into in the Placer County Jail.
