August was the eighth month of 2021, and the final month in which Chris was readily available to the public until 2023. It marked the third time in history that Chris was in serious legal trouble, this time for admitting to engaging in incest with Barb.
The month began with Chris being arrested in a motel parking lot and jailed without bond, and being suspended from Patreon. For obvious reasons, Chris was radio silent for the remainder of the month, with all new information limited to court appearances and the occasional leaking of old videos.
