    It’s not every day police end up arresting a Wookiee.

    Ukrainian officials took someone dressed up as the hairy “Star Wars” character Chewbacca into custody on Sunday, NBC News reported.

    The person was picked up at a polling station in Odessa for violating election rules and campaigning on voting day.

    "Chewbacca" was supporting candidate "Darth Vader," a Sith lord candidate who was running in local elections, NBC News reported.

    Police posted a photo of the arrest on Instagram, calling it “nothing unusual.”

    Chewbacca's reaction couldn’t be translated from Shyriiwook.
