Even if you don’t know the name Jake Lloyd, you probably remember young Anakin from Star Wars: Episode 1, the cute little savior of the universe, born of a virgin and midi-chlorians on Tatooine so many years ago.

While Lloyd might have been pretty cute and adorable (or just super annoying) back then, these days, the former child actor has hit a rough spot in recent years.

This past weekend, 26-year-old Lloyd was arrested after a high-speed police chase that lasted for miles on I-95 in South Carolina. The chase ended when he lost control and crashed into some trees. Giving his name as Jake Broadbent, he was arrested for reckless driving, failure to stop, driving without a license, and resisting arrest.

But if the cops thought he was speeding at 100 MPH, they’ve clearly never seen the guy podrace.

If the cops thought this “Star Wars” actor was speeding, they clearly never saw him podrace.
