South Carolina Man Uses The Force, Lightsaber, To Stop Knife Attack

South Carolina Man Uses Lightsaber To Stop His Stabby Stepdaughter


Rock Hill, SC – A man in South Carolina found himself in the middle of an epic battle last week against the dark side of his 17-year old step-daughter Kayla Knapp.

According to the Charlotte Observer, on March 16th a fight broke out between a man and his stepdaughter late last Thursday at an apartment off Celanese Road in Rock Hill.  Responding officers came upon a strange scene as they investigated what appeared to be a physical altercation between the two, which involved knives and a toy light saber from Star Wars.

Law enforcement interviewed witnesses and learned that Kayla Knapp had gotten into an argument with her stepfather before grabbing two kitchen knives and going after him. Channeling a Jedi, her stepfather grabbed a nearby toy light saber to ward off the slash attempts and strike his attacker multiple times, winning the fight.  Emergency medical personnel were called to the scene to treat both parties.

Kayla Knapp was arrested and charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

Never bring a knife to a lightsaber fight.
