Jake T. Austin
'Fosters' Star Goes Full Lohan
At Teen Choice Awards
8/19/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It was shades of Lindsay Lohan at the Teen Choice Awards last weekend when a former Disney star went ballistic backstage ... even throwing a projectile at a staffer ... TMZ has learned.
The culprit is Jake T. Austin -- who, according to multiple sources, tried to hit up the Candies gifting suite backstage when he was turned away by a worker who didn't recognize the "Fosters" actor.
Multiple witnesses tell us ... Jake pulled a full "Don't you know who I am?" ... screaming at the employee, "I'm a presenter. Who the f**k are you?!"
We're told Austin got so heated, he picked up an empty shoe box and fired it at the female staffer's chest.
Jake eventually stormed off ... only to return to the gifting suite an hour later with his mom by his side -- and despite having parental supervision, he continued to talk more smack to the suite worker.
It's just another Lohan-esque moment for the former Disney actor -- who was busted for DUI last October and then destroyed the same car in a 4-car pileup just a month later.
We reached out to Austin for comment -- so far, no word back.

Jones handled himself pretty well ... until Mike moved to his inside and tagged the UFC superstar right on the jaw -- and even Jones admits if the brawl was full-force ... "He'd kill me."
Now that's a fight we'd LOVE to see.

Scene of Elevator Assault
Set to Close Down
8/13/2014 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ray Rice won't ever have to revisit the scene of his infamous domestic violence incident ... that's because the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ is closing down.
The casino will close by September 10, making it the fourth casino in AC to shut down this year. Revel only opened in April 2012, at a cost of $2.4 billion.
Ultimately, the casino's legacy might end up being the place where Rice was caught on surveillance cameras dragging his seemingly unconscious fiancée out of an elevator ... before they were both arrested for domestic violence.
Rice struck a deal and served no jail time for the incident. He was suspended by the NFL for two games.
If you're thinking there's a connection between Rice's arrest and the hotel's downfall -- a Revel rep tells us they've seen no evidence of that. Fact is, all AC casinos are just hurting.
