Convicted sex offender arrested for ‘living’ in ‘Star Wars’ line

`The only force with this Star Wars fan was the team of sheriff’s deputies who arrested him. James Andrew Crawford, 35, of Sun City was arrested Tuesday for allegedly failing to register as a convicted sex offender after ‘relocating.’

His new abode? It wasn’t a sprawling ranch-style house in the country. It wasn’t a stylish apartment in the city. It was a tent erected outside a Corona theater.

For two weeks he had camped out —- as had others —- with hopes of being among the first to see the latest ‘Star Wars’ movie, authorities said Thursday. The lengthy wait was for naught, as the arrest and subsequent booking into county jail came two days before the debut of ‘Star Wars: Episode III —- Revenge of the Sith.”
