The Sad True Tale Of Dog The Bounty Hunter

Duane Lee “Dog” Chapman and his wife, Beth Chapman, rose to celebrity in 2004 when their escapades chasing fugitives and bail jumpers were documented on the A&E reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Duane Chapman was a television standout with his long blond hair, signature wraparound shades, and iconoclastic look. The show became such a huge hit that it furthered the network’s mission to shift brands from their “Arts & Entertainment” origins to more populist programming.
