Star Wars fans attack Jar Jar Binks life-size model with torn arms

Star Wars fans were struck by stripping their arms from his life-sized Jar Jar Binks model.

The court heard that the drunken Neil Gobie, 36, shook the limbs of a 7-foot rubber doll to defeat his stepdaughter boyfriend Marcus Reed.

The pair was patrolling the family pubs and arrived at Mr. Reed’s apartment when the line began.

Prosecutor Richard Oakley told the court: “Mr. Reed shook Mr. Gobie. When they wrestled near the Star Wars character, Mr. Gobie grabbed his head and stripped it off.

“Then he pulled out his left arm and shook it as a weapon.”

29-year-old Reed suffered a rib fracture in Charmouth, Dorset last October.

“I was so drunk that I couldn’t remember the incident,” Gobie said.

Reed bought this number for £ 285. He said: “I fixed it, but it cost hundreds.”

Gobie, a worker in Fromm, Somerset, admitted assault and criminal damage in front of Weymouth JP.

He is fined £ 585 and has to pay £ 510 compensation.

Famous for the catchphrase “Misa Going Home,” Binks was named Star Wars’ most annoying character.
