The truth of the matter is that Hailstone broke the law. In a case filed in 2011, Chip was accused of two counts of perjury and other instances of providing wrong information to the police. After a long legal battle, the courts ordered that Chip serves three years under probation. His appeal was unsuccessful after so many years. He has to serve the full sentence. Consequently, Chip Hailstone was jailed at the Anchorage Correctional Complex at the beginning of this year.
Hailstone found himself in trouble with the law after a series of events. First, at Alaska, Chip claims that Trooper has physically assaulted his daughter. He made a report to the police and accordingly applied for restraining orders against Mr. Trooper. Moreover, Trooper told the media that the conduct of Trooper left his family living in total fear.
