Police were initially called to the location near the popular Hollywood and Highland Center (map) after someone reported the Chewbacca and Darth Vader characters were involved in an altercation, Officer Liliana Preciado of the Los Angeles Police Department said.

KTLA video showed a man at the scene dressed as Boba Fett standing near a police car in hand-cuffs.

The character’s helmet and gun could be seen on the back hood of the patrol car.

Preciado could not confirm if the man in the Boba Fett costume had been arrested and it was unclear what role in the alleged altercation he may have played.

There were no further details on the possible incident between Chewbacca and Darth Vader.

Incidents involving characters on the Walk of Fame are not uncommon.

Earlier this year, a 35-year-old man who dresses as the character Mr. Incredible was convicted in an Oct. 21 assault of a woman who plays Batgirl.

City prosecutors have earned convictions in several other cases as well.

Case descriptions provided by the City Attorney’s Office included two disputes over tips from tourists that led to attacks on Mickey Mouse by another Mickey and Donald Duck, and an assault by Superman on another Superman.

In another case, a woman dressed as Catwoman grabbed an undercover police officer who did not tip after posing for a photo with her.
