Bounty hunter, Duane “Dog” Chapman drew police attention during a bounty hunt in Lakewood, Colorado. Dog and his crew were involved in a high-speed car chase in the 1700 block of South Pierce Street as the suspect they were after, tried to get away. According to ABC 7 News, the Lakewood Police Department were called to the location when a report of shots may have been fired was called in. Although no bullets were fired, a Taser and red pepper balls were used, although no one was hit.
The Lakewood Police Department reports that the Chapmans and their crew sideswiped the suspect’s car in an effort to stop him.
Beth told ABC 7 News "We've been in this business for a very long time, and we're very, very conscious about public safety. And doing this in the right way without endangering the public, you know, this is just an average day at work."
The suspect, David Anderson was confronted by Dog and his posse of bounty hunters and taken into custody. He was then turned over to the Lakewood Police. David failed to show up for his court hearing, so that is why Dog went after him.
Beth told reporters, "The most important thing here is that the fugitive is in custody, his sort of little rein of terror ended here on this street and he was put into custody. More charges are being added."
In Colorado, the police don't have to be notified when bounty hunters are trying to capture their fugitives. In this case, they asked Dog and Beth to inform them when they were in the area,. Beth responded that they would try.
Dog and Beth are in Colorado filming scenes for their CMT show, “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt,” which should premier in about three months. They’ve been filming in the area for three weeks.
