Luke Sky Walker gets arrested, Mark Hamill jokes

No, the Force was not with him.

Luke Sky Walker, 21,was arrested Thursday by police in Elizabethton, Tennessee, for a probation violation in connection to a felony theft charge. The jailbird namesake of the Jedi master was then taken into custody at the Probation and Parole Office before being taken to the Carter County Detention Center, WCMH reports.

Even Mark Hamill – who played Luke Skywalker in the iconic “Star Wars” film series – commented that the arrest was a little out of this world.

“The real crime here is Mr. & Mrs. Walker saddling this poor guy with that name in the first place,” Hamill tweeted early Sunday. “#MisbegottenMoniker”

Hamill also took a shot at Walker’s height of 5-foot-6, seemingly pointing out that he doesn’t have a future with the Dark Side either by adding to his tweet, “#AlsoTooShortForAStormtrooper.”

Hamill’s tweet had been retweeted more than 1,900 times as of early Monday – and generated plenty of puns for “Star Wars” aficionados.

“I feel worse for his sister, Anna Kin,” one tweet read.

“It is, realistically, an impossible name to live up to,” another read.

Walker’s remained held without bail at the Carter County Detention Center, jail records show.
