Mark Hamill responds after man named Luke Sky Walker arrested in Tenn.

ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Force was not with 21-year-old Luke Sky Walker after he was arrested by the Elizabethton Police Department.

According to WJHL, Walker was arrested last week for violation of probation. Records show Walker, a Johnson City native, was on probation in connection to a felony theft charge.

Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, the main protagonist of the original Star Wars films, took to Twitter after Sky Walker's arrest.

"The real crime here," he said, "is Mr. & Mrs. Walker saddling this poor guy with that name in the first place."


He was arrested at the Probation and Parole Office and was taken to the Carter County Detention Center.
