SEATTLE (AP) — The force wasn’t strong with an abandoned homemade lightsaber that briefly shut down the Seattle dowtown bus tunnel.
Seattle police say on Sunday night a tunnel security guard found a suspicious looking device and called police, who shut down the tunnel while the bomb squad was called.
But the device turned out to be the handle of a homemade lightsaber, the fictional laser-saber that Jedis use in the Star Wars universe.
Police say the lightsaber was constructed of a flashlight, a plastic toy, duct tape, battery and a string.
Investigators say closed, this case is.
