Teenage actor Jake T. Austin is facing a hit-and-run charge after his vehicle was involved in a four-car accident.

The former 'Wizards of Waverly Place' star's Audi allegedly smashed into three parked cars in Sherman Oaks, California in November and the passengers were not present when police arrived on the scene. At the time, it was not known if Austin, real name Jake Austin Szymanski, was directly involved in the crash but he was listed as the legal owner of the Audi.

The 19-year-old actor, now starring in TV series 'The Fosters,' has been charged with one count of misdemeanor hit-and-run, according to a report by TMZ.com. If convicted, he could face up to six months in prison and a fine.
