You'd think that the characters of 'Star Wars' would have more pressing matters than Earth's mundane political squabbles, but that hasn't prevented Chewbacca from campaigning and being arrested by Ukraine police whilst driving Darth Vader to an election booth in Odessa, Ukraine.




According to the Guardian, Chewie was fined 170 Hryvnia (around $8 USD) due to being unable to produce proper identification documentation. Darth Vader claimed his detention was illegal because "Chewbacca is his pet and general servant and thus does not require documents".



Despite the intergalactic intervention, President Petro Poroshenko is expected to retaining the coalition government. Guess Vader should have bought the Death Star over.
