Shortly before being involved in a high-speed chase that landed him in jail, a new report claims Star Wars actor Jake Lloyd already had a run-in with the law!
TMZ reports that on March 26, the Indianapolis Metro Police Department were called to his mom Lisa's house after he showed up unannounced. She claims he started verbally abusing her and said that she ruined his life. When she refused to let him in, the 26-year-old reportedly broke down the door and proceeded to assault her. Lisa suffered abrasions and bruising during the attack.

During the interview with the cops, his mom revealed that her son has schizophrenia and was not taking his prescribed medications. Since Jake had already fled the scene by the time the authorities arrived, nothing happened as his mother did not want to pursue the issue further.
After speaking directly with Lisa, TMZ learned that the family has banded together once before to get Jake help and they plan on doing that once again. They insist that he is not a violent person.
Jake starred as a young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. He's also known for his role as Arnold Schwarzenegger's son in the 1996 film Jingle All the Way.
