Life Beyond zero Chip Hailstone Jail. Know all the Details.
Chip Hailstone was put behind bars for a 15 month period in the anchorage complex correction Complex as from July 2017 with charges of perjury and making false statements to the police in July 2011.
Chip Hailstone filled statements against a state trooper, claiming he had physically assaulted his then 17-year-old daughter by taking hold of her hand unpleasantly.
He also alleged that someone pointed a gun at his daughter Tingmaq after a confrontation involving his adopted son John and others and a family in Noorvik. He said all these instilled great doubts about his family’s safety and he had to inform the cops.
Chip Hailstone filled a restraining order for his daughter against trooper Blitz, alleging that the officer had made sexual advances towards his daughter Tingmak during an interrogation while glaring at them unpleasantly.
However, Blitz’s colleague Trooper Young’s testimony turned out controversial to Hailstone’s statements about the sexual advances claim. Trooper Young said that Trooper Blitz only held Tingmak in an escort position and had apologized for it and Chip Hailstone was fully aware of the apology.
