Well, this is good news for him?!?
Last year, former Wizards Of Waverly Place actor Jake T. Austin got into a spot of trouble when he was driving and hit three parked cars in Sherman Oaks, CA at 3 a.m. then left the scene (and the car???) in an Uber.
Well, the actor was charged for the crime back in July — but it looks like he's walking away scot-free!
The judge found him NOT GUILTY, and he didn't even need to show up for court!
Jake supposedly got off because even though he left the scene before cops got there, he still reported the accident in the proper amount of time.
Talk about a legal loophole!
Not to mention that even if he WAS drinking and driving, he was safe from DUI charges because the cops never saw nor talked to him that night, so they couldn't prove that he was, in fact, drunk.
Luck was on his side, we guess.
