    The Fort Worth Police Department is still full of "Star Wars" geeks.

    A rather elaborate video published to the department's official Facebook page Wednesday has Chewbacca being shown the ropes by a senior officer.

    His first day on the job didn't go too well, as more than 500,000 people have witnessed in the 17 hours the video was first published.

    "We know things have been tough for Chewbacca lately," the post read, referring to the latest "Force Awakens" film. "We hoped that we could find a place for him within our Department. Did it go well? You decide."

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    The Wookiee's fumbles included a routine traffic stop that, quite simply, escalated way too quickly and an alarming use of a bowcaster at a department gun range. As for the self-defense course? Well, you'll have to watch to see how that ended.

    This isn't the first time Fort Worth PD geeked out on Star Wars. Stormtroopers played a central role in the department's recruitment video last year. That video now has more than 20 million views on Facebook.

    The department has also shared a video of Darth Vader interviewing for a position.
