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.

Review of the 3 Part Series Thus Far

In the wake of all of the hype surrounding the 3 part series of DTBH episodes currently airing on A&E, we have decided to conduct a brief review to determine if the series is living up to expectations. The series starts with a straightforward premise: arrest Marco Padilla. When the initial attempt is unsuccessful, the Chapmans begin digging into Padilla’s family and friends, and the hunt spirals into a quagmire of identity theft and other fugitives who may or may not have useful information. Each lead the Chapmans obtain opens up multiple avenues of investigation, and their search ends up expanding in difficulty beyond any hunt previously aired.

What makes this series unique is how complicated the search becomes and how much the Chapmans’ entire skill set is tested. There is much more action in this series than in most of the previous episodes. In addition, there is increased participation from local law enforcement, the legal system, and local media. Prior to this series, the show was becoming stagnant. Each hunt was predictable and the show was repetitive. This series is much more involved and detailed, and helps inject new life into DTBH. We are aware that as of today, Marco Padilla remains at large. Interestingly, this does not seem to detract from the series. It is still intriguing to follow the Chapmans working a more difficult hunt than their usual fare. We look forward to seeing the concluding episode on Wednesday.



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.

Judge finds Chapman not guilty of indecent exposure

HONOLULU (KHNL) – A big court victory for a former co-star of the hit TV show “Dog, the Bounty Hunter.” Late Monday afternoon, an Oahu judge found Timothy Chapman not guilty of indecent exposure.

Following his acquittal, Chapman spoke with reporters and called the week-long trial a “waste of taxpayer money.”

The day starts with former reality TV star Timothy Chapman taking the witness stand in his own defense. He testifies he drove into the Bank of Hawaii parking lot at Ala Moana Center to change his jeans, after he spilled some orange juice.

“As I went to grab it, I actually hit it like that,” he demonstrated with the cup in evidence.

“And what did that cause the cup to do?” Brook Hart, defense attorney, asked.

“It caused the cup to tip and the orange juice just spilled everywhere.”

He says he first used baby wipes to mop up the juice on his genitalia.

A woman earlier testified she saw Chapman masturbating inside his parked truck.

“Defendant parked in that stall purposely to engage in the conduct for which he was charged,” Wayne Tashima, deputy prosecutor, said in his closing arguments.

But Circuit Judge Richard Perkins finds no direct evidence that the defendant was aware the woman was watching and acted intentionally. The 43-year-old is acquitted on the indecent exposure charge.

“When our school teachers need more money, and we gotta reach in the tail to give them, we gotta reach inside the till to give them more money, the only thing we grab out for them is more excuses,” Chapman said after the verdict. “And maybe this is part of the reason why. This is a blatant waste of taxpayer money.”

Chapman says he would love to return to the hit TV show someday.

“It’s been a long year,” he said. “The only thing I really want to do right now is, I haven’t seen my kids in two weeks, just go home to my children.”

The judge in the jury-waived trial already found the defendant not guilty of the more serious charge of terroristic threatening last week. Prosecutors had said when security officers arrived at the scene that night, Chapman started his truck and sped off, nearly hitting one of guards.
