According to reports, a man dressed as the character Chewbacca has been charged for bashing a ski resort worker.
It is believed the incident happened on the weekend at Thredbo.
Police say the 51-year-old hit a staff member with a snowboard a number of times at Alpine Way resort while dressed as the Star Wars character.
The 55-year-old staff member was left with “facial and dental injuries”.
The man was arrested and charged with using an offensive weapon to commit an indictable offence.
The staff member from the hotel also took out an AVO against the man.
The man inside the Chewbacca suit posted on social media what exactly went down…
Writing that he had been banned for riding in the snow dressed in costume, when he “dropped him" adding, that the man “lost consciousness and some teeth.”
He also wrote, "Coped (sic) head but to the bridge of the nose and have been having some difficulty with balance. Been ordered not to have any contact with Thredbo staff (even if i know them) about what happened and must stay 15klm away from Thredbo. Other bail conditions are impossible for me to follow so they have set me up to fail. I am thinking of going into custody here until the trial."
