Thane never knew Ty was asking him for the injuries for that reason. They got in trouble by FBI Agents.
Thane explained to the agents what happened. They made a plan of getting the gang in trouble except for Ty and Thane, but Thane didnt want uncle Gus to go to jail and leave aunt Virginia and Charlotte by themselves.
