EXCLUSIVE

0719-jake-t-austin-instagram-02"The Fosters" star Jake T. Austin has finally been charged with hit-n-run ... after his car was involved in a bizarre 4-way crash in November -- and he was nowhere to be found.

TMZ broke the story ... Austin's car slammed into 3 parked cars on a street in Sherman Oaks, CA around 3AM.  The damage was real bad ... and eyewitnesses told us the people in his car called a car service to pick them up before cops arrived.

A witness told us on TMZ Live one of the men in the car matched Austin's description. Cops must agree because they charged him with one count of misdemeanor hit-n-run.

If convicted, Austin could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. There's also a possibility he'll get a probation violation for his DUI last year.

He's not like a young Leonardo Dicaprio, he can't really act so it shouldn't be hard to find a replacement. Hopefully a better one

Holy crap.. "*Could get* six months"? And in L.A., that means "Will never, in a million years, get anything close to six months."

Hit and run should be a five year automatic sentence. People should be terrified to do it. It's a heinous crime.

Come on TMZ! He was the little brother Max for 4 years on Wizards of Waverly Place, you know, the Emmy winning Disney show with Selena Gomez? The girl you obsess with daily? I watched the show with my boys and the poor guy was out a job as soon as he turned 18 and he had plenty of cash with nobody to tell him NO. I wish him the best.
