Former Disney Star, Jake T. Austin, Charged with Hit-N-Run?


jake t austinWizards of Waverly Place” actor, Jake T. Austin, recently was charged for a hit-n-run after his car was involved in a 4-way crash in November TMZ reports.

According to eyewitnesses, Jake reportedly crashed into three parked cars on a street in Sherman Oaks, CA at 3 a.m. The crash was apparently bad enough that car service had to be called to pick up the individuals in the car before police arrived.

Witnesses reported that a passenger of the 2010 Audi threw a bottle of vodka at a nearby building. Another passenger of the vehicle apparently matched the description of the former Disney star.

Unfortunately for the Austin’s bad behavior, the actor may face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted. He as well may face a probation violation for his previous DUI.

Jake T. Austin escaped DUI charges for driving drunk in October. TMZ reported that “The Fosters” star was “initially charged with two counts of DUI, but his lawyer, Jay Jaffe, got the two charges dismissed in exchange for a measly speeding charge … to which Austin pled no contest.”

Austin was sentenced to 24 months probation and prohibited to drive with any amount of alcohol in his system.

To think the 19-year-old would’ve learned his lesson from prior mistakes.

Guess some lessons have to be learned the hard way.
