Personal LifeEdit

In March 2016, Garret was charged with a felony revenge porn charge for disseminating a photo of a woman engaged in a sexual act. Officials said he should have known that the image was to remain private & that the woman had not consented to the dissemination.

The IceHogs suspended Garret indefinitely pending the outcome of his legal proceedings.

In March 2016, the charges were dropped against him because the images had not been disseminated in Illinois; they were disseminated in Michigan & the offense is a misdemeanour there.
