(Newser) – Jake Lloyd, better known to Star Wars fans as the young Anakin Skywalker from The Phantom Menace, is undergoing treatment in a psychiatric facility, his mom, Lisa, tells TMZ. Lloyd, 27, has been jailed since June after he hit speeds of more than 100mph during a police chase, but Lisa Lloyd says he has schizophrenia and authorities decided he needed to be treated. There's no word on how long he'll be in the facility, but she says she can already see improvement in his behavior. (Click for 21 more famous people with schizophrenia.)
