Stormtrooper Sam shut down a whole Kansas business street last week. According to KWCH12 news, police were called after an Action Travel customer saw a man dressed as a Star Wars Stormtrooper, carrying a weapon. Turns out that Chris Burns and a friend were shooting a comedy video for his Vine character and the weapon was plastic.

Unamused, the police told him, ”If you walk around like that people will call us.”

“I’ll be seeing you a lot I guess,” Burns replied.
