Jake T. Austin is charged with one count of misdemeanor hit-and-run. According to TMZ, the former "Wizards of Waverly Place" star was involved in a car crash November last year. An Audi registered under his name slammed into three parked cars.
The 19-year-old actor whose real name is Jake Austin Szymanski was nowhere to be found when police arrived on the scene. Rumor back then suggested that people in the car took off before law enforcement could question them.
Austin is facing up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted for the offense. The actor who got probation for a prior DUI arrest could be slapped with probation violation as well. So far, he and his camp haven't commented on the matter.
