Homemade light saber prompts Seattle bus tunnel security scareon April 29, 2013 @ 5:07 pm (Updated: 5:16 pm - 4/29/13 )
The force was not with bus riders in Seattle Sunday night, after what turned out to be a homemade light saber forced a security scare that shut down the downtown transit tunnel.
The Seattle Police Department says a security guard came upon what he thought was a suspicious device just before 10 pm. He called the cops, who brought in the Arson/Bomb Squad.
But after taking a closer look, police determined it was a homemade lightsaber made to look like the popular weapon on Star Wars.
Police say the lightsaber was made out of a flashlight, plastic toy, duct tape, battery, and string.
