Well it's an easy way to get on TV...



However, sometimes when kids don't listen....



then...Hot Topic came a knocking...



But when you make up stories about a pedophile, and get the fans angry....you kinda have to be sorry...



But that guy is still a pedo tho...allegedly? Maybe?

Re: Jake Lloyd, former child actor who played Anakin Skywalker, arrested

'Star Wars' actor Jake Lloyd -- who played Anakin Skywalker -- suffers from schizophrenia, went off his meds and attacked his mother before his latest police run-in... TMZ has learned.

We've learned that the Indianapolis Metro Police Department was called on March 26 to report the assault. During her interview with cops, Lloyd's mother, Lisa revealed Jake has schizophrenia and was off his meds.

According to the report, Lisa told police Lloyd showed up at her house and began yelling at her ... telling her that she ruined his life. When she wouldn't let him in, Jake knocked her down and stomped on her three or four times, causing abrasions and bruising on her arm.

When police arrived, Jake was already gone. His mom declined to press charges.

TMZ spoke with Lisa ... who confirmed Jake began showing signs of schizophrenia when he was 19. She said Jake has gotten help in the past and the family plans to try and get him help again ... once he's released from jail.

Lisa said despite the March incident, Jake is not a violent person.

Re: Jake Lloyd, former child actor who played Anakin Skywalker, arrested

I actually blame the parents who let their kids be child actors because the vast majority of them turn out like this when they grow up. It's just not a normal upbringing (usually because the parents are using their kids as a cash cow), and the kid realizes at 20 years old that the best days of his life were when he was 12.

And on top of this Jake Lloyd has to suffer the humilation of being Darth Vader, which every fan hated his and Hayden's portrayal of so I'm sure he gets harrased about that.

Damn shame.

Watching that video reminded me how many idiots don't move to the shoulders when cops are behind them.

Now if they can only arrest all the other people involved in making the most boring movie I ever had to sit through in a theater.
