There was a disturbance in the force at a Wisconsin high school on Thursday. A student decided to celebrate “Star Wars Day” by going to school dressed as a storm trooper.

This prompted an evacuation of the school when a frightened parent saw the costumed figure entering the facility and called 911.

The parent saw the student going through a back door Thursday wearing the signature shiny white body armor a mask, worn by stormtroopers in the Star Wars films, and carrying a bag. Police Capt. Jody Crocker says the parent did the right thing given the suspicious situation, and that any perceived threat — real or otherwise — can’t be taken lightly.

Fans have adopted May 4 as “Star Wars Day” because “May the fourth” is a play on the oft-repeated Star Wars phrase, “May the force be with you.”
