Florida cop defeats 'Darth Vader' with pepper spray

FRESNO, California

Orlando police got an unusual call on Thursday -- a man in a Darth Vader mask being unruly. Officers say the 28-year-old man was drunk and walking in the middle of the street. When he was asked to move, he laid down in the street.

Police say when the officer approached he started to punch and kick him. The officer used a taser but that didn't work. The cop then tried pepper spray and that did the trick.

The suspect now faces felony charges of resisting arrest and battery on an officer.
