Chris faced a fatal car accident on Monday evening 24th April 2017, in which 66 years old Kenneth Mosher who was driving a tractor was killed. Chris was arrested in hit-and-run case. Because of his fatal car crash on 24th April and his subsequent court appearance on 25th April, he was unable to appear on social media.
Chris appeared the court for the judgment for his hit-and-run case. The court declared him guilty for the case and was released from custody charging him $10,000 bail, on 16th May 2017. Chris’s first photo on social media, after he got released from custody was posted by one of his fan Ashley Overton, who was the store clerk. His photo was taken, when he was shopping at O’Really Auto Parts store in Oelwein.

While responding the comments on the post she explained
“I didn’t ask him for a selfie. I had been talking to him and he mentioned I could get a picture with him if I wanted”.
She also wrote on facebook
“This king of kind-hearted man. He is a farmer. I was able to let him know that I pray him and that meant a lot to me. I just wanted to tell him that and got the opportunity finally”.
The photo was taken and posted, two days after Chris was pleaded guilty. Chris seems to be smiling on the photo, but he looks to have a heavy weight loss.
