‘Star Wars’ Actor Jake Lloyd Arrested Following Car Chase
Jake Lloyd, who played Anakin Skywalker in 1999's Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, was arrested in South Carolina Wednesday after leading police on a high-speed chase.
The 26-year-old Lloyd faces charges of reckless driving, driving without a license, failing to stop for a blue light and resisting arrest. He is scheduled to appear in court in July.
"On Wednesday afternoon, around 1:30 p.m., we received a call from the Charleston County office...we were told a car had crossed over county lines into our county, Colleton County," said a police spokesperson. The car was speeding and passed over double yellow lines. We were able to find the car that matched the description and the chase ensued."
