Former child actor Jake Lloyd, who played young Anakin Skywalker in 1999’s Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, is being held in a jail in South Carolina. Colleton County Sheriff Sgt Kyle Strickland said deputies arrested a 26-year-old man who later was confirmed to be Lloyd.
Lloyd was charged with reckless driving after hitting speeds over 100 miles an hour, before crashing into trees. Strickland went on to say that the man (Lloyd) gave his name as Jake Broadbent, but the date of Birth he had given matched the actors’ listed by a movie database. Lloyd also said his hometown was Fort Collins, Colorado, where Lloyd was born.
