PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon judge has ordered 45 days jail time and a mental health evaluation for a 33-year-old man who struck at toy store customers with light sabers last December.

David Allen Canterbury told Judge Kenneth Walker that he is already seeking mental health treatment. Canterbury also apologized to his victims.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/LWuDHh)that Canterbury pleaded no contest Monday in Circuit Court to fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest. Portland police say Canterbury had a Star Wars light saber in each hand as he swung at three customers last Dec. 14 at a Toys R Us store. He carried the light sabers outside the store and swung at police.

Officers eventually wrestled him to the ground.

Canterbury has been banned from the toy store.
