Jake T. Austin lands in hot water. The former "Wizards of Waverly Place" actor is rumored getting involved in a hit-and-run car crash early Tuesday morning, November 19 after an Audi registered to the star, whose real name is Jake Szymanski, slammed into three parked cars.
The accident happening on a street in Sherman Oaks, California around 3 A.M. caused major damages to the vehicles. It's unclear if the ex-Disney star was behind the wheel at the time of the wreck. A witness told TMZ, the driver and his passengers took off before the cops arrived on the scene.
One of the people in the ride allegedly threw a vodka bottle out of the car. They then called a service to pick them up and fled the scene abandoning their car. Police are investigating the incident as a hit-and-run. No arrest has been made so far.
Amidst his rumored involvement in the car crash, new report reveals Austin is scheduled to attend a court hearing this Wednesday stemming from his October 8 DUI arrest. He was initially pulled over for driving at night without headlights. After smelling booze, police administered a field sobriety test, which the actor failed. He reportedly blew a .08 when arrested.
