Man dressed as Darth Vader attempts to rob convenience store, struck by salad dressing

A man in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, was charged with armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a felon for attempting to rob a convenience store -- dressed as Darth Vader.

According to ABC News, Jacob Mercer, age 32, carried a handgun into the Jacksonville Beach convenience store on Sunday evening and demanded money from the cashier. The store clerk refused to give Mercer -- again, dressed as Darth Vader -- the money, and threw a jar of salad dressing at his helmet. Mercer then ran out of the store, where witnesses saw him take off the helmet and reveal bleeding cuts on his face, before escaping in a car.

Mercer was arrested by the Police when he was later identified by a witness at the location he was staying. After being taken to the hospital to tend to his wounds, Mercer was sent jail and arrested.

It's worth noting that while Mercer's chest-mounted control box looked pretty Vader-esque, the white gauntlet gloves were a strange costuming choice...
