A Times Square hustler dressed as the “Star Wars” character Chewbacca is suing the city for $1 million over “humiliation” caused by the alleged false arrest. :cry:

Robert Williams, 41, was wearing the costume of the famous Wookie when he was busted for demanding tips in December 2015, according to court papers.

A tourist told cops that Williams got four inches from his face and shouted, “Give me $20 or get your monkey-ass kid out of here.” :mad:

Williams claims in the lawsuit that he did absolutely nothing wrong. :rolleyes: He also said his “reputation and character were injured,” even though he was in costume. :rolleyes:
