A plastic “Star Wars”-style light saber tossed into the Islamic Center of San Diego parking lot Wednesday night caused brief concerns that it was an explosive.

A man was arrested after the incident about 8 p.m. at the mosque on Eckstrom Avenue near Balboa Avenue and Interstate 805 in Clairemont.

Witnesses told San Diego police a man tossed the toy out the window of a car. The act was being investigated as a possible hate crime.
