‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ wows packed Bradenton church with message of redemption


BRADENTON — He replaced his trademark arm bands, feathers and leather vest with a conservative suit coat, but he still wore sunglasses, metal-tipped cowboy boots and a half-pound of gold chains and medallions around his neck.

Duane Chapman, who’s known around the world as “Dog the Bounty Hunter” was definitely in the house.

Chapman delivered a very personal message of redemption Sunday — during three services — at The Source Church in Bradenton, while his bounty-hunting wife Beth watched from the front row.
