Dog The Bounty Hunter And Cast. Where are they now ?

 

Many people write in asking what the crew is up to, now that they no longer are on TV.

Duane Dog Chapman and wife Beth Chapman have joined the fight against Bail Bond Legislation that severely limits Bail Bonds, or rids states of them all together.  The move to leave TV came about as a family decision to allow Beth time and energy to pursue the presidency of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS). PBUS is a national association which represents over 15,000 bail agents across the United States.   Duane and Beth are not currently in production of any TV series.

Leland Chapman

Leland Chapman has moved to the mainland and lives in the southern US.  Leland still works as a Bail Agent full time and is quite successful.  He is now married to Jamie Chapman and is doing well.  He can be found online at https://www.facebook.com/LelandBChapman/  and on Instagram at @LelandBChapman.  Leland also is making public appearances,  check his Facebook page for details.  Leland appeared in all 3 seasons of “Dog and Beth” : On The Hunt”

Leland married Jamie P Chapman last summer and the happy couple currently reside in Alabama

Duane Lee Chapman has moved to Florida and has his own bail bonds business. He is enjoying spending time with his fiancee’ and their young family.  He is doing quite well. You can follow him at https://www.facebook.com/duaneleechapmanbailbonds/ 

Duane Lee is with his long time fiancee and enjoying life away from television.  We missed him on the last series.  A funny man with a great sense of humor.   He has been seen in recent photos with brother Leland. Good to see that team together,  even for a photo

Lyssa Chapman

Lyssa has retired from Television and now owns a Salon in Hawaii called “Tan Lines LLP”  She is raising her daughters and in a happy relationship with her partner. She published a book after being on the show.

Tim Chapman

Last we heard, Tim Chapman has moved to California.  Tim Chapman was a regular cast member for the first four seasons of Dog the Bounty Hunter. Chapman did not appear in the show from season five, to the season seven episode “Mister Mom” which aired on April 14, 2010. Chapman explained that he had taken a break so that he could take care of his four children. He also was dealing with the fallout from his second arrest.   Tim was divorced from Davina.  Tim has vanished from the public eye.

 

 

 

DOG Comments On White Collar Criminals

From High Finance to Life on the Lam… newyorktimes.com

Marcus Schrenker, a former money manager accused of misleading his investors, is expected to plead guilty on Friday to faking his own death in a plane crash. The occasion has inspired Bloomberg News to take a look at the common mistakes that financiers make when they turn into fugitives.

Neither Mr. Schrenker (pictured above) nor Sam Israel, the hedge fund swindler who staged a suicide, managed to elude the authorities for very long — something Bloomberg chalks up to “lack of preparation for the rigors of life on the lam.”

As Duane Chapman, the star of A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” rather poetically put it: “A criminal’s life has nothing but ups and downs, whereas a white-collar criminal has never seen the dark side, so when he enters that realm, he is lost.”

What are the do’s and don’ts for financial types hoping to make themselves disappear?

First of all, faking one’s own death rarely throws the authorities off for long if there’s no body left behind, Bloomberg says. Having lots of cash is essential, and heading for a campground that doesn’t require identification can work, for a time.

Leaving maps behind with certain pages torn out — something Mr. Schrenker reportedly did — certainly doesn’t help.

REAL FACTS ON RECENT MEDIA REPORTS RE DOG

Real DOG facts (Orignially posted by the DTBH Website Administrator.)

Body: Shooting At Dog Incident.

Few Facts on DOG shooting report. The Media was saying DOG did that for attention.

1) No one from the Posse’ or the show called the Police about the shooting to report it, neighbors did.

2) DOG did not do it for the attention. In fact, he did not respond to requests for a statement as he did not want further charges. Fugitive was caught and it was time to move on

3) The shooting site was not roped off by police or investigators. Fans were all over the place. This was not a clean crime scene. The area was swarming with people

Also, in regards to the vehicle flipping that was being chased by DOG according to media.

1) Again, the media was not accurate. DOG was not driving or following the truck, it was in fact Beth. Odd fact was, this rollover happened on the same date, May 19th, that DOG lost his daughter Barbara a few years ago.
