Star Wars Actor Jake Lloyd Is Schizophrenic — Reports Reveal He Went Off Meds & Attacked His Mother Earlier This Year
This incident happened a couple of months before his recent crazy car chase with the police, but it's still super disturbing.
Jake Lloyd, who portrayed young Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars movies, apparently suffers from schizophrenia, went off his meds, and attacked his mom back in March.
On March 26 — to be specific — the Indianapolis Metro Police Department was called by Jake's mother Lisa to report the assault.
During the report, Lisa revealed Jake was diagnosed with schizophrenia and went off his meds. He showed up at her house and began screaming at her, saying she ruined his life.
Lisa went on to tell the police that when she didn't let him into her home, Jake knocked her down and stomped on her multiple times, causing abrasions and bruises on her arm.
Jake was already gone by the time the police arrived and his mom declined to press charges.
The 26-year-old's mom said the former child star has gotten help in the past and their family plans on trying to get him help again when he's released from jail.
Despite the scary incident in March, Lisa says Jake isn't a violent person.
Hopefully the actor will say yes to getting the help he needs.
