Chet is a man that was the target and victim of the infamous "Chicago Sunroof" after having an affair with Jimmy McGill's first wife.

History[]

Better Call Saul[]

Background[]

In the early 1990s, Jimmy McGill divorced his first wife when she cheated on him with a guy named Chet, who happened to owe Jimmy money. In 1992, a drunken Jimmy encountered Chet at a local Dairy Queen and decided to perform a "Chicago Sunroof" (defecating through the sunroof of Chet's car) as revenge. Unbeknownst to him, however, Chet's children were in the back seat. Even worse, Chet had ties to the local prosecutors. Jimmy was quickly brought in by the police on charges of property damage, assault, and and a possible sex offense. He was booked and put in pre-trial detention. With Chuck McGill's influence, however, Jimmy was later released. ("Marco")

Chuck, who had become a successful lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico, visited Jimmy in jail at the request of their mother. A desperate Jimmy begged Chuck to use his knowledge of the law to make the charges disappear. Chuck reluctantly agreed, on the condition that Jimmy move to Albuquerque and take up a legitimate job in the mailroom of his law firm, Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill (HHM), along with a stern warning not to make a fool out of Chuck in return. Although hesitant to leave Cicero, Jimmy agreed and was subsequently released due to Chuck's intervention. After wishing farewell to Marco, Jimmy moved to Albuquerque. ("Nacho")
