Reality television show star Timothy Chapman will demonstrate how he wiped spilled orange juice off his groin area while seated in his pickup truck last year near Ala Moana Center, defense attorney Brook Hart said.

Chapman, a cast member of the cable television show “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” is on trial in state court on charges of indecent exposure and terroristic threatening for allegedly masturbating in a bank parking lot and driving his truck toward a security guard before fleeing. He is not related to the show’s main star, Duane “Dog” Chapman.

In court yesterday, witness Kimberly Lum testified that when she walked past the front of Timothy Chapman’s truck, she saw a male masturbating in the front seat. She said she did not see his face, but she described his actions graphically in court. 

Ala Moana security officer Jason Wessel testified that when he arrived at the parking lot in response to Lum’s report of a male fondling himself, Chapman was moving from the front seat of the truck to the back seat.

According to Hart, Chapman was on his way to Ala Moana Center Jan. 3, 2008, when he spilled some orange juice on himself, primarily on the crotch of his pants.

He said Chapman turned into the Bank of Hawaii Ala Moana branch parking lot to wipe himself off and change trousers in the back seat of his pickup.

Because there was a child seat on one side and a container of clothing on the other, Hart said Chapman had to sit on the back seat’s center console to wipe himself off. He had to change trousers twice, Hart said, because the first pair was too big and he could not find a belt.

When he changed a second time, Hart said, Chapman realized he did not wipe himself off completely the first time so did so again.

Hart attempted to discredit Lum’s testimony by asking her a number of blunt questions about masturbation, including one that was thrown out by Judge Richard Perkins.

Hart said he will present testimony from an expert who examined Chapman’s trousers and confirmed the presence of orange juice.

He said he will also present testimony from a traffic reconstruction expert to confirm Chapman’s claim that he was not trying to run over Wessel. Hart said Chapman turned his front wheels in Wessel’s direction to avoid hitting a newspaper vending machine and a pillar before jumping a curb and driving onto a sidewalk to flee

    time for television.

    We also received a call from our friend at Dakine. Tim is in the middle of divorce proceedings also and unable to travel. Can you imagine as a single parent to 3 small kids, including a baby, being out of town for a month at a time ? We are told that Tim may come back when his schedule allows it. DOG and crew still often help Tim’s bond company

    Case Closed

    I wish Tim and his family all the best. I am sorry that he is going through such a hard time. I am glad to hear the Dog and his family are supporting him in his hour of need. Hopefully he is now setting new priorities for himself and his three small children. They need him now more than ever. May God Bless.

  22. We all love him in the UK

  23. I miss Tim on the show since he has been gone its just not the same.

  24. tim cool he neaver did nothing wrong

  25. This is the thing about American Law and having your whole life portrayed by the media.
    Now all those scumbags that lied and even that security guard that was clearly just after money should be brought up on charges.American law is just totally over the top,the list of laws in Hawaii that you can go to jail for is ludicrous and while its clear that Americans need and should be protected when it comes down to it they are not.I love going for a holiday in Hawaii and America in general but anyone can see that its a country that’s totally run by the cops,the military,overpriced lawyers and sky high medical bills by huge corporations. America should be about freedom but what real freedom do Americans have,when you can get jailed for drinking in public,jaywalking and now wiping orange juice from your pants!.I always tell people that being under the media spotlight is a double edged sword,it can and does destroy peoples lives.I know Tim himself had an extremely bad childhood and then his wife cheated on him,then the absurd court case.Its best for him to stay away from the spotlight,look at all the problems that Duane has had, to the point that even his own son betrayed him for money,just how terrible is that.I hope that Duane and Beth STAY TOGETHER but to be honest,its time to stay away from fame,even the best marriages can break under the ever watchful eyes of that dirty mud racking 24/7 filth they call media.
