Anger. Fear. Reckless driving. The Dark Side are they.

Driving with a high midichlorian count will get you pulled over.

He would have been pretty good in the role of Anakin Skywalker from those prequel Star Wars movies.

Former child? Yes. Former child actor? Not really.

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

The reports didn't indicate he was drunk or high. Not sure what would possess him to try to outrun the police, since it's only going to make things worse. Maybe he wanted to avoid the inevitable "Little Ani Gets Busted" headlines -- or having his real name plastered all over the news. Apparently "Lloyd" is a stage name... or perhaps he had it changed.

I agree, that mugshot makes him look like a sinister motherfucker. I met him at a con back in March and he seemed pretty together then. I think the new skinhead look is because he had bleached hair (not the best look) and just decided to shave it off.

I think the police probably just reacted in such a way that it made his face look meth-ey.

Maybe Sebulba sabotaged his brakes.

With that mug shot, he was probably wearing a ghost outfit. Maybe staring in an horror movie....

Yep'. If he didn't have the right people around for guidance, it'd be really hard to be mocked by so many people on the internet. Sometimes I wonder how the 'meme' people make it. Like Skank Girl. Or the little girl with the "backtrace Dad". To have hundreds of millions knowing who you are, and shitting on you all day. That would be tough.
