Anakin Skywalker Arrested for Reckless Driving

By James O Malley on at

Jake Lloyd, the actor who played Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is now an adult, and has apparently been arrested for reckless driving, failure to stop, resisting arrest and driving without a licence.

According to TMZ, Skywalker was driving in Charleston, South Carolina and started passing cars on double-yellow-lines, which led to a high-speed chase that eventually ended when he hit several trees after going through a fence. It was at this point that The Force caught up to him.

Now 26, Lloyd appears to have long given up on acting, though is now studying psychology and film at college in Chicago.

Unfortunately we've no details on what sort of Pod he was driving. At the time of writing, he is apparently still in custody. [TMZ]
