A man dressed as Chewbacca has been accused of beating a ski resort worker with his snowboard in Australia.

Police said the 51-year-old man dressed as the Star Wars character hit a member of staff at the Alpine Way Resort in Thredbo.

He allegedly left the 55-year-old victim with “facial and dental injuries”.

Chewbacca was arrested and charged with using an offensive weapon to commit an indictable offence.

According to Australia’s Daily Telegraph, the suspect wrote on social media that he lost his temper when the staff member told him he could no ride in his costume. 

“He lost consciousness and some teeth,” he wrote. “Been ordered not to have any contact with Thredbo staff (even if i know them) about what happened and must stay 15km away from Thredbo.”

He has been released on bail.
