Jake T. Austin has been charged with a hit-and-run after smashing his Audi into three parked cars in Los Angeles last year.

The actor, known for “Wizards of Waverly Place” and “The Fosters,” faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted on the misdemeanor count, reports TMZ.

At the time of the November 2013 incident, it was not clear whether Austin had been behind the wheel of the car registered to him when it crashed into the other vehicles at approximately 3 a.m.

Austin left the scene before authorities arrived.

He’s now been formally linked to the accident and charged.
