Now, there's something you don't see every day. A Star Wars Stormtrooper walking down the street.
It happened in Salina Monday, and it prompted a brief lockdown of at least one downtown business. Salina Police say officers responded to the report of an armed man in the 100 block of S. 7th Street.
The call came from nearby business, Action Travel, as a customer saw what appeared to be a man in a costume, carrying a weapon. Police advised the business to go into lockdown as police checked out the situation.
"Maybe we should call, just make a call," Action Travel employee Janelle Snyder said. "Due to the stuff that's happened out in Colorado at the theater and just weird stuff. If he wouldn't have had the gun, we wouldn't have thought about it."
Police said Chris Burns and a friend were shooting a video for a Vine, and the weapon was a plastic prop gun. Burns created a vine account called Stormtrooper Sam on Thursday. He has almost 200 followers.
"Eventually, it would be cool if they could advertise for the new Star Wars film," Burns said. "I was thinking it would be cool to have Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford on my Vine."
Burns says he plans on making more Vines.
