Duane Chapman, aka Dog The Bounty Hunter, spent 18 months at Texas’ Huntsville State Penitentiary in the late 1970s for his role in a man’s death.

He later became a bounty hunter, starred in a reality TV show, and wrote two books. He was in Fort Worth yesterday signing copies of Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given, and a young fan captured this photo of Chapman — behind bars again in Texas!


  1. nutz,

    Duane is my Uncle, and you can say what you want about the way that he dresses, or whatever else you’d like to rank on him for, but he seems to be pretty happy with his life, and he’s porbably a lot better off than you are, so I’d suggest you keep your dumb ass comments to yourself.

    I can say am his uncle also anyone with a www can say anything they want too why does he wear 6 inch high hill boots for it dont make him tough the little short Moron with a BIG MOUTH OF TEXAS.

    Put that in your lunch kiddie bag and chew on it for awhile lmao


    • Some people are just stupid and some are jealous. Only problem is you can’t fix stupid. Dog does not claim to be anything he isn’t and he is doing something good with his life. To make a comment about they way he dresses is pretty childish. To rag on his kin for taking up for him is simply being an asshole. Maybe some day he will come looking for you. Then you can tell him to his face without being a coward and directing it at his relative. Don’t forget to tell him what you said about him. Because one thing is for sure. You are still stupid. It can’t be fixed. You will do good to remember that while your dogging on someone else that is no doubt a better person than you.

  3. I don’t know why people have bad things to say about Dog I like his show and he’s doing something positive with his life. He paid his dues let him live his life.
