The 18-year-old actor was reportedly driving with a friend when he crashed into three other cars before leaving the scene to seek medical attention. Jake had an injury to his mouth, and went directly to the ER and received stitches.
But here’s where it gets tricky: “Witnesses around the scene say that Jake tossed an alcohol bottle out of the car, but before cops arrived at the scene, he had ordered an Uber (Town Car service) and headed to the ER,” and will be getting off the charges because of the medical attention needed, which is okay to do.
Jake‘s lawyer called the cops later to inform them he was the owner of the car and said that the “victims will be fully compensated … so there’s really no need to prosecute.”
Last month, Jake was pulled over for driving without headlights and when police smelled alcohol, administered a field sobriety test and when Jake blew a 0.8 blood alcohol level was charged with a DUI.
