Star Wars' Jake Lloyd Arrested After High Speed Car Chase
Jake Lloyd, who is best known for playing the role of a young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, was arrested this weekend in Charleston, South Carolina after a high speed car chase.
The 26-year-old former actor was pursued by cops for miles and even into another county after he was seen passing cars on the double yellow line and driving recklessly, according to TMZ.
Jake eventually lost control of his car and crashed through a fence and into some trees in a wooded area. He was arrested for “reckless driving, failure to stop, resisting arrest and driving without a license.”
Jake is reportedly still in custody as of 11:00am on Sunday morning (June 21).
