SEE IT: Dash cam footage shows Jake Lloyd chase

Dramatic dash cam footage from the high-speed chase that led to his arrest shows “Star Wars” alum Jake Lloyd driving like he’s trying to relive his pod-racing glory.

In video footage obtained by the Daily News from the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office, the 26-year-old former child actor can be seen hurtling in his Nissan at speeds that cops say exceeded 100 miles an hour.

The Force was clearly with the other drivers on the stretch of Interstate 95 in South Carolina last Wednesday, as Lloyd dodged collisions weaving in and out of traffic while evading pursuing patrol cars. At one point, he drove fast enough on the shoulder that his car kicked up a huge trail of dust in his wake.

Lloyd rose to fame as the young Anakin Skywalker in “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.”

After a chase across two counties, Lloyd crashed through a fence, lost control and plowed into a tree.

The Hollywood has-been faces charges including reckless driving, failure to stop and driving without a driver’s license, cops said.

Colleton County Sheriff’s Office in South Carolina have released video that shows the police chase of Jake (Lloyd) Broadbent.

Lloyd, born Jake Broadbent, is best known for playing Anakin Skywalker, the future Darth Vader, as a 10-year-old in 1999’s “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.”

But stardom seems a long time ago and a galaxy far, far away: His last movie credit was a bit part in the 2005 sports drama, “Madison.”
