According to TMZ, Jake was sentenced for felony charges of driving under the influence and possession with intent to manufacture or deliver heroin.

The charges reportedly stem from an incident in Washington in January, when the 33-year-old allegedly refused to identify himself to park rangers before taking off in an RV. State troopers pursued him and forced him to stop. The outlet reports that police found drugs and a stolen firearm inside the vehicle.
