A 33-year-old man who had been arrested after striking Toys 'R' Us customers with a light saber during the holiday season has received a sentence of jail time for his attack.
The incident had occurred around 10 p.m. on Dec. 14 when David Allen Canterbury had assaulted three other customers at a Portland, Ore. Toys 'R' Us store.
Police had arrived on the scene and found Canterbury swinging the light saber. He had continued to swing even after one officer used a Taser, making contact.
According to OregonLive, the 33-year-old man pleaded no contest to fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest. He received a sentence of 45-days jail, two years probation and possible mental-health treatment.
KPTV reported Canterbury had initially disappeared after his trial, but was found again this week by officers.
Canterbury told Judge Kenneth Walker he was already seeking mental-health treatment; he also reportedly apologized to his victims for his attack with a light saber. Judge Walker had dismissed other related charges of interfering with a police officer, theft and disorderly conduct.
Canterbury has also been banned from the scene of his crime, Toys 'R' Us.
Court records indicate Canterbury had previously been arrested several times for drug-related charges.
