Jake T. Austin Accused of Hit-and-Run, Drunk Driving

by at . Comments

Ex-Disney star Jake T. Austin drove a car that crashed into three other vehicles early Tuesday, but he may avoid legal ramifications despite bailing.

Sources say Jake and a friend were driving in Studio City, Calif., around 3 a.m. when he crashed into the cars and tossed a vodka bottle out the window.

Before police arrived at the scene, Jake called for a car service and he and his friend high-tailed it out of there. Jake denies he had been drinking.

Cops suspect drinking was involved, but because police never located him, it's very hard to prove. Booze aside, there's still the hit-and-run element.

Jake's lawyer, however, tells police that Jake was the owner of the car, and that he and his passenger were injured and needed medical attention ASAP.

In other words, they didn't have time to leave a note because Jake T. Austin had an injury to his mouth, went directly to the ER and received stitches.

Jake's lawyer has made it clear that the victims will be fully compensated for any damages, so there's really no need to pursue the matter or prosecute.

Legal maneuvering at its finest, but he's not off the hook yet ... at least not for the DUI he was arrested for earlier this year. No dodging that one, JT.
