When Chet Hanks was always considered a black sheep of the family. He was involved in a car accident where he rear-ended Terry Moogan. He alleged that Chet was driving under the influence and was driving recklessly. The cops were not at the scene or the accident nor did Chet receive DUI charges that day. Moogan claims that he suffered a brain injury and whiplash. Chet asked that he not call the cops after the collision.
His parents, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, ended up getting sued for physical and emotional damages from the car accident.
