Where there's smoke ... TMZ has learned, Ex-Disney star Jake T. Austin was busted for DUI just last month in the SAME CAR that was involved in the 4-car hit-and-run crash this morning.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Austin was arrested October 8th by the CHP after being pulled over for driving at night without headlights. We're told police officers smelled booze as they approached his vehicle, administered a field sobriety test and Austin did poorly.

According to sources, 18-year-old Austin blew a .08 and was arrested. He has since been charged with DUI and has a court date scheduled for TOMORROW.
At the time he was busted, Austin was driving the 2010 Audi with New York plates -- the same car that slammed into multiple cars early this morning.

The driver allegedly threw a vodka bottle out of the car and then left before cops arrived.  There's no way cops can arrest the driver for DUI, but it's definitely a case of felony hit-and-run.

An eyewitness just told us on TMZ Live ... she is "100%" that the driver of the hit-and-run is Austin.  She says other witnesses are just as sure.

Is he one of those boys that Disney castrates before puberty so the kid can do 12 year old acting roles until he's well into his mid 20s?
.
At least he'll have that perpetual falsetto. Do you think that's what happened with that Timberlake punk?

He was driving THE SAME CAR. Is that unusual in l.a.? To be driving the same car for a month? Imagine us poor folks who have to drive the same car for YEARS.

He obviously has issues with alcohol. Being an "ex Disney star" it's not surprising in the least.

Of course an eyewitness called into TMZ. Too bad the cops didn't go find that bottle that was tossed into the neighbour's yard. Wonder if they could get DNA or fingerprints off it.

Why is it any time any star who has worked with Disney it's some how Disneys fault. First of all it's the parents they are to busy indulging in there child's fame and money to care....once they become adults they are accountable for there actions.
