Young Anakin Skywalker Arrested For Reckless Driving, Police Chase

June 22, 2015


Because it must be hard being the kid from the Star Wars movie nobody likes, actor Jake Lloyd was arrested in South Carolina after leading police on a high-speed chase reaching up to 117MPH. For reference, that is about half as fast as you should run if a friend asks if you want to watch The Phantom Menace.

Lloyd is in custody after the wild chase last week. It started in Charleston, S.C. when cops noticed Lloyd driving a Nissan at around 80 MPH. They began to chase him, and Lloyd's reaction was to speed up, weaving and narrowly missing cars and trucks. He even used the median to pass vehicles.

Lloyd hit several trees and was taken into custody and charged with reckless driving, failure to stop, resisting arrest and driving without a license.

I actually camped out to watch The Phantom Menace the night it came out. I regret doing that. You know what my favorite part of the movie was? When the credits rolled and it was over. I drank so hard that night. SO HARD. I haven't stopped.

Thanks to everyone who sent this, at least half of whom blamed Jar Jar.
