“He’s quite the drinker,” Robert Berry, whose friend owns the land Chris grows his corn on, told Radar. “My friend told me that when she goes to her farm, she sees a string of empty beer cans all over the field. He just drinks them while he’s working and throws them on the ground when he’s done...I guess he was having trouble out of the limelight,” added Robert.

“Ever since he came back from Los Angeles, everyone was saying that Chris got involved with other things besides drinking,” Robert continued. “I mean, it seems quite odd that he would run into the back of a tractor on a clear road, with no obstructions. He definitely was not in his right mind.”
