The restaurant was holding a May the Fourth promotion — that's a pun on the movie franchise's expression, "May the force be with you."
After police arrived, the young woman dropped the toy weapon, but police said she didn't initially comply with their direction to get on the ground.
With weapons drawn, police forced the woman to the ground and removed her helmet. That caused the woman to suffer a bloody nose, bruising and scratching, the woman's boss previously told CBC News.
The woman was handcuffed and later released. No charges were laid.
A witness on scene captured the interaction, including the woman sobbing. The video went viral and prompted outrage, including from William Shatner, famed as Captain Kirk on Star Trek, who called for an investigation.
"Rifles drawn for a plastic toy Cosplayer? Didn't comply right away? Are you blind Chief? Watch the video to see how quickly she complied," the actor said on Twitter. "This cannot be covered up."
