“A 42-year-old Pennsylvania man is facing an assault and harassment charges after allegedly beating his mother with a Star Wars light saber, according to court records.
Joan Vargas, 75, told police that her son Andrew had hit her repeatedly with what she called a light saber. Vargas said she was sitting on a dining room chair when her son began striking her with this saber in the head, on her back/neck area and on her wrist.
Andrew Vargas, who lives with his mother, was arrested on misdemeanor assault and harassment charges. He is being held in the Clearfield County jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. Vargas`s rap sheet includes prior convictions for theft, drunk driving, and criminal trespass.”
The Smoking Gun
The 6` 4,” 330-pound Vargas claims that his mother was conking herself over the head with the light saber, and he told the cops that she has many issues.
A 42-year-old man who still lives with his mother and has a collection of light sabers is the one with many issues.
Perhaps if Ms. Vargas had disciplined her son with a switch he wouldn`t have turned into such a cowardly loser.
He is being held in jail in lieu of $10,000 bail, I guess the sap can`t afford a thousand bucks to stay out of jail.
Vargas may be a bear of a man, but even if he was allowed to take his light saber collection with him to jail, he won`t be able to fend off jailbirds from beating him up or worse. Prisoners hate pedophiles and cowards who beat women, he`s going to have a tough time behind bars.
My thoughts and prayers are with Ms. Vargas, it`s a shame that at a time in her life when she should be enjoying her golden years, she`s being harassed by her yellow-bellied snake of a son.
