Dog’ Sidekick On Trial For Indecent Exposure
Bounty Hunter’s Sidekick Allegedly Fondled Self
HONOLULU – A sidekick of bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman went on trial Monday. He was charged with indecent exposure and terroristic threatening.
Defendant Tim Chapman blamed orange juice and the bounty hunters’ wife for unusual but not illegal behavior.
The 37-year-old woman said she saw him fondling himself in his truck at Ala Moana center. Security guard Jason Wessel said he recognized Chapman from the show despite an unflattering angle.
“I saw the male’s rear end,” Wessel said.
Chapman’s lawyer Brook Hart said Chapman was hiding as best he could while wiping spilled orange juice off himself in the cramped truck. He highlighted inconsistencies in the security guards story.
Chapman was charged with felony terroristic threatening because the guard said he swerved menacingly toward him to get away.
Chapman’s lawyer said he didn’t flee the parking lot because he was afraid of the wrath of the law. What he was really afraid of was the wrath of Beth Chapman.
At the time bounty hunter television franchise was on hiatus after racist remarks by Duane “Dog” Chapman and Beth warned cast members to stay away from bad publicity. Hart said the guard talked about calling a television station.
Beth Chapman is on the witness list along with experts on traffic accidents
