Character Information Edit
Chuck was assigned to run the operation to catch the letter writer who was targeting Rusty Beck and Sharon Raydor, and while stern with the young man, is shown to be fond of him, giving him a nickname "Jump Street". Though the operation was ultimately a failure when the writer, Wade Weller infiltrated it, Wade was later taken down by Lieutenant Provenza. After Phillip Stroh's escape, Chuck placed a secret protective detail on Rusty for the five months between “Special Master Part Two” and “A Rose Is a Rose” at Sharon's request. After Rusty caught the guy that was following him, something that deeply impressed Chuck, he attempted to convince Sharon to call off the protective detail, something she ultimately did. Aside from Sharon, Rusty was the first to know of Chuck and Amy Sykes' relationship. Though Sharon knew because Sykes had to inform her as her boss, Rusty found out because he caught Chuck and Amy making out. Neither of them realized that Rusty had busted them until after he told Sykes in “Do Not Disturb”.
It was revealed during season 3 that he and Detective Amy Sykes are dating. They may have been dating as early as “Flight Risk” as Amy was going on a date before a murder investigation interrupted it. In “Do Not Disturb”, Amy confirms the relationship amidst much teasing after Rusty comes out as gay. The relationship is ongoing. In “Tourist Trap”, it became obvious that Chuck has talked to Amy about marriage and even having kids, but she does not share his vision. She said that she will not be having children while they both work at the LAPD and that she is not ready to retire for that and doesn't think Chuck is either. She became visibly upset and stated that if kids are so important to Chuck that he should find someone else or he just needs to stop talking about it. The conversation ended after that as the suspect they were monitoring committed a crime and they went to arrest him. In “Quid Pro Quo” they are apparently living together as Amy warns Mark Hickman that her boyfriend is at home upstairs in their apartment.
In “Hindsight, Part 4”, Chuck is forced to kill Jon Barnes in a shootout. Barnes was a criminal who lost his young son as part of a series of unsolved shootings spanning twelve years and had murdered a few teenagers in retaliation.
