Jake Lloyd, who appeared as a child playing young Anakin Skywalker in 1999’s “Star Wars” prequel “The Phantom Menace,” has been arrested in South Carolina after leading police on a high-speed car chase, Colleton County authorities have confirmed.
Lloyd was driving in Charleston, S.C., when police attempted to pull him over. Lloyd then led authorities on a chase that went on for miles and ended when Lloyd lost control of his vehicle and crashed into trees.
The 26-year-old was arrested under the name Jame Broadbent with charges of failure to stop at a blue light and resisting arrest. He is currently in custody awaiting bond.
As a child, Lloyd also appeared in “Jingle All the Way,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and 2005’s “Madison,” starring Jim Caviezel.
In a recent interview, however, Lloyd revealed that he left the film business for good, saying his “Star Wars” fame ruined his childhood and made his life a “living hell.”
