    Link: 'Star Wars' actor charged in S. Carolina high-speed chase - Yahoo Celebrity

    WALTERBORO, S.C. (AP) — A former child actor who starred in one of the "Star Wars" movie sequels faces charges after leading South Carolina deputies on a high-speed chase.

    Colleton County Sheriff's deputies on Wednesday arrested a 26-year-old man they confirmed through a former talent agent was Jake Lloyd, who played a young Anakin Skywalker in the 1999 movie "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace," Sgt. Kyle Strickland said Sunday.

    The man was charged with failing to stop for officers and reckless driving after hitting speeds over 100 miles an hour, Strickland said. The chase lasted for more than 25 miles before Lloyd drove off Interstate 95, plowed through a fence, and continued speeding along a parallel frontage road, authorities said. The road ended at a dead end, but the vehicle kept going into a wooded area before it hit several small trees and stopped.

    Lloyd said in a 2012 interview that the role he performed when he was 10 years old made his youth hellish because he was bullied by other children. His last acting credit was in 2005, according to IMDB.com.


    Some of the funniest comments thus far:
    "He never would have been arrested, or even charged if this happened on Tatooine. He's famous there."

    "He was driving with a midi-chlorian count three times higher than the legal limit."

    "Suspended license he will have." -Yoda

    "Apparently the Force was not with him."

    "Master, if we keep this chase going any longer that creep is gonna end up deep fried. And personally, I'd very much like to find out who he is, and who he's working for."

    "So he wasn't as good as he was in that race against the ugly alien? What a let down."
