British detectives are hunting down Hollywood star Tom Hank’s son after he allegedly destroys a hotel room in a row of drugs and sex.
Chester Hanks is said to have gone berserk, causing damage worth £ 1,200 when he brought three girls back after a night out.
Shocked staff called the police the next morning after discovering broken glass and a TV ripped from the wall in the four-star room near Gatwick.
Officers were working with foreign police to track down troubled 24-year-old Hanks, who has battled drug addiction.
The aspiring hip hop artist, criticized last week for using the racist N word on Instagram, had been the star guest of a club not far from the Arora International where he was staying. Hanks, who was on vacation in London, reportedly drank expensive champagne and vodka in the VIP lounge section.
A source claimed: “He was quite obnoxious once he started drinking at the club. He kept saying ‘do you know who I am?’ No one was really impressed and it clearly bothered him. No one recognized him.
“He then returned to the hotel with a British actor friend and three promoters. He was sick in the parking lot
then went up into the room and got very noisy.
“He asked the girls if they would join him in the bed, but they’re not like that. So he started to scream and make a
good noise. He saw some powdered makeup called banana powder and started asking “who’s got the coke?” But nobody took drugs there.
“Then he started screaming that he wasn’t going to share it with another man.”
Angry airline pilots staying at the hotel complained about the noise before a receptionist came up to the room to implore Hanks to shut up.
The source added: “Then all you could hear was this crash and crash. The next morning it was gone but the room was ransacked. Everything was smashed and there was glass all over the floor.
Detectives arrived and took statements from witnesses. A Sussex Police spokesperson said: ‘A guest caused around £ 1,200 damage to a hotel room.
“We were given the name of the suspect, a 24-year-old man from the United States. We are working with other agencies to try to find him so that he can be interviewed.
Hanks, who appeared in the Indiana Jones blockbuster Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at age 17, is close to his 58-year-old father who is currently filming Dan Brown’s bestseller Inferno in Hungary with British actress Felicity Jones.
The Oscar-winning double films grossed over £ 5.5 billion at the global box office, making him one of the highest-grossing players in movie history.
Last November, her son revealed a long battle with drug addiction, saying on Instagram, “I’ve been fighting drug addiction since I was 16. Finally, at the age of 24, I decided to get help. I can honestly say that I am the happiest I have ever been. I am clean and sober from everything – including alcohol. I am grateful to my family and everyone who cares about me.
Hanks is the third eldest of four sons of his famous father A-Lister.
His attempt to make a name for himself in hip hop as “Chet Haze” ridiculed him for embracing black culture despite his privileged white education.
Hanks claimed his use of the N word in a rant about former friends that sparked an outcry online last week was free speech. He said on Instagram: “F *** you hate a ** dude *****, I will never stop chasing my dream.”
He then posted videos of himself with his feet raised in first class, drinking champagne on a flight to New Zealand and wrote: “I don’t accept that society decides what someone can or can not say. It’s something we call freedom of speech.
Hanks, who also runs an art gallery in Los Angeles and manages a rapper named Nova Rockefeller, has attended major movie premieres and is regularly pictured on the red carpet with his family. They supported him in his drug addiction problems. In March, he was seen cheering on and cuddling his Saving Private Ryan star dad as he watched a hockey game at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In April his actress mom Rita Wilson revealed she had a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
A spokesperson for Arora International declined to comment.
In a text to the Sunday Mirror, Chester called the allegations a “bold libelous lie.” He also threatened “all the strength of my legal team” but declined to comment further.
