Dog The Bounty Hunter News And Talk

Tim Chapman found not guilty of indecent exposure
Advertiser Staff

Bounty hunter Timothy Chapman was found not guilty of indecent exposure in Circuit Court today.
 Chapman is a sidekick of Duane “Dog” Chapman, star of the popular “Dog the Bounty Hunter” reality television show.

He said in testimony today he was being paid “hundreds of thousands” of dollars a year for appearing on the show before it went off the air last year and he has not been a cast member since broadcasts resumed.

Chapman denied witness accounts that he appeared to be masturbating or fondling himself while sitting in a truck at the Ala Moana shopping center the evening of January 3, 2008.

He said he had spilled orange juice in his lap and moved into the back seat of the truck to clean himself off and change his pants.

Chapman said he doesn’t wear underwear and used baby wipes to clean his groin area before putting on another pair of pants.

Then he realized that his replacement pants were too loose and would fall off because he didn’t have a belt, he needed to put on a third pair of pants. Before doing that, he said, he cleaned his groin area again because it was still wet from the orange juice.

After he put on the the third pair of pants, a security guard arrived on the scene and ordered him to get out of the truck, Chapman testified.

Chapman said he and other cast members of the reality show had been warned by Duane Chapman’s wife Beth to avoid getting into situations that could lead to bad publicity, so he decided to leave the area.

He said he moved back into the front seat, and drove the truck over and sidewalk and left the area.

Under questioning from defense lawyer Brook Hart, Chapman said he believed no one could see him while he was in the back seat because of the truck’s tinted windows.

Asked if he was “concerned” because he wasn’t wearing underwear, Chapman said, “No, I figured I had enough privacy with the tinted windows.”

Chapman said he never saw a passing pedestrian who claimed she saw Chapman apparently masturbating while sitting in the front seat of the truck.

Security guard Jason Wessel testified that Chapman was in the driver’s seat when Wessel arrived at the scene and only moved to the back when he saw the guard.

Chapman wasn’t wearing pants, according to Wessel.

Wessel claimed that Chapman nearly ran him down when he drove away. That led to a felony charge of terroristic threatening, but Circuit Judge Richard Perkins dismissed that charge last week for lack of evidence.

The remaining charge is a petty misdemeanor.

Chapman explained that he had extra clothes in his car because he had moved out of his house after his wife had an affair and became pregnant.

His wife filed for divorce last week just as the criminal trial began.

    So does this mean he is coming back??? He seems to have similar values of Dog so of course he would not be caught doing these things.

  2. Janice said:

    No official word on Tim’s return yet. We will post any official word

  3. i think tim is realy nice and they should have him back asap.

  4. Kathy said:

    I wish Tim were back for the 2009 episodes. His presence complimented the rest of the family and somehow made the group complete. Tim needs to just
    get back in the saddle!!!

  5. Anne-Marie said:

    Hi from the UK, I think Tim is the best bounty hunter, i love him on the show and really miss him. I refuse to watch the episodes without him in. Whether or not he did this i’m sad to say is debatable, however i would like to believe that it has been a misunderstanding and would like to see him back in the show. Good Luck Youngblood, i miss you loads!!

  6. Janice said:

    Youngblood does not want to leave Hawaii for a month at a time. It is his choice to take care of his children. He is
    very involved with the Chapmans

  7. Dianne Carpenter said:

    Everyone who thinks Tim should be back on the show should should contact A & E and let them know.

  8. Janice said:

    Tim does not want to be back on the show at this point. He has chosen to stay home and devote his time
    to his kids instead of weeks in Colorado

  9. Cecile said:

    I’m another U.K. fan of the show and really think it lacks something without Tim. I hope that the rest of the family are offering him all the support he needs, as they appear to be a really caring team who would rally around in such circumstances. My family wish Tim and the rest of Dog’s crew all the very best, and hope to see him back on TV in the very near future. Kind regards x

  11. Hi my family & I are big fans of the show! I also agree that Tim Chapman should return to the show. Its just different without him, its not the same! Hope everything turns out good for him and the whole Chapman family. They will be in our prayers!!

    i sure hope that all the family is going to stand by tim .when anyone gets thier hearts broken .it feels like you have lost your whole life . and you think the pain will never go away . i hope god heals tim quickly so he can carry on his life .im sure its safe to say we have all changed in our cars anyone who says no is not being truthful .tim i hope you find your peace xox

  13. Linda said:

    It would be nice if Tim were on occasionally. Bobby Brown is on the show occasionally, and so are some of the other bondsmen in Honolulu, so why couldn’t Tim be on occasionally too? I do miss him. I wish him all the best with whatever he is doing now, especially with his kids.

  14. bring tim back, i so pissed off at his wife sneaking around him getting pregnant and then dicides to devorce tim for some minor stuff . tim God bless you , i want you on the show now .

  15. Janice said:

    We hope to see Tim back. The show being produced in Denver reduces the chances as Tim has 3 small kids
    to care for. Tim is often seen at family functions.

  16. Donna said:

    I’m shocked that Tim would take off. I don’t think he should be back.

    I prefer Lyssa, can’t wait to see your wedding episode.

  17. Janice said:

    Shocked that a father would want to be with his small children full time ?

  18. Cindy said:

    I’m pretty sure he’s coming back. I saw a post from someone who just saw Dog at a speech and she met him and he told her Lyssa was due in Aug and that Tim was coming back. Plus, the new pic on Dog’s website shows Tim in it. Yay!

  19. Janice said:

    Can you please refer us to the picture ? We have not seen a photo of Tim on the official site.

  20. Anne-marie said:

    I’ve seen pictures of Tim also on the Dog facebook page, i’ve only seen one, but it says something about the new series and a picture of the team with Tim walking down some steps. I too got really excited and thought he was back on the show. i hope he finds time to come back, i love the fact that he wants to be with his babies and that just proves what a fantastic man he is. Love you Tim, if you need a new wife just call okay? haha!! love you, xx

  21. mark coon said:

    That big dumb horse faced glob of a pig they call Beth. She should have her own show called “Hog the Food Catcher”

  22. Patti said:

    Donna,
    F off and die. He has three children you lame brain that he’s taken care of since his slut wife decided to screw around. Tim always looked so adoringly at her. She’s a wench. Maybe, Donna, you’re the one having the affair with his wife?

  26. the whole things sounds like this witness had nothing better to do–maybe she should have gone up to see just
    exactly what he was doing–but then again she should have
    minded her OWN business.
    i am so SORRY about his divorce–THAT IS WHY MARRIAGE
    SHOULD BE ILLEGALL

    HEY, MARK COON! It’s ignorant people like you that make this world so goofed up in the head. She’s not fat. If you could get your head out of your rear-end, you’d see that she has an enormous chest, real or not. Unfortunately, that makes her appear, to stupid people like you, that she’s obese. And, anyway, what’s wrong with someone being obese? I wonder what you look like. But I don’t care what you look like and neither does anyone else. People who can’t see past looks and continually miss these folks’ character, are just lost souls in life. I think you might need a shrink, or at least a stay in a rehab facility. Now, how does that make you feel?

  28. patti said:

    Dearest Tim, Everyone misses you and your infinite sacrifices you have made for your family. I don’t necessarily believe that marriage should be outlawed (we’re celebrating our 38th anniversary in May and are still on our honeymoon) … people make mistakes, big mistakes. I can’t even begin to imagine what you’re going through. What a wonderful Dad and person you are! I say, get rid of Bobby Brown and let’s get back to the regular Dog shows that included Tim. (You’re also cute, handsome and have a great sense of humor!)

  29. adrian bruner said:

    Tim I wish the best I think it was bullshit you are a hell of a bounty hunter hope to see you back on the show.

  30. I miss youngblood! Watching DOG right now. Patti you make valid points but there is something wrong with obese people. I myself was once obese but now in great shape. Some people can not help being over weight but for the most part it is a life style and not something that is though of as being ok. It’s a sign of laziness and weakness.

  31. Sorry, AC, I disagree. It is not a sign of laziness and weakness. I wonder just how “obese” you were. Now, tell the truth, don’t lie. I can tell you and have no problem telling anyone that I was once almost 350 lbs. I could work like a dog, running circles around any skinny secretary or manager in the law firm I worked for. And I was head of the household while my husband was finishing college and took care of the kids (during the first part of the Mr. Mom phase of life). He never once said anything to me about my weight. I communted over 140 miles, each way, just so that I could have a six-figure job in Los Angeles, while keeping the family in a perfect suburban neighborhood where kids could play on the streets, etc. I did all this and still made sure that the kids were doing well, I was involved in everything that they did, including sports, a brownie leader for two years and then girl scouts for another three, watched baseball, football, basketball, drove trucks full of band instruments for a 300+ Santa Monica High School Band of kids every weekend, spent ONE YEAR, EIGHT MONTHS AND SIX DAYS on the Jenney Craig diet (so don’t say we have no willpower), and the list goes on and on until I finally had a bypass surgery in 1997. I am not the only one like this. In fact, most intellectually advanced obese, morbidly obese and super morbidly obese educated people would tell you the same thing. However, what you have done, AC, is categorize every fat person as being lazy and weak. This is the problem. You cannot tell, unless you were to speak to one of the people you deem to have a sign of laziness and weakness whether they have more brains than you do, or even some of the professors you had in college, if you went to college, because you’re so sure that fat people are weak and lazy. There’s no difference between saying a fat person is weak and lazy and saying that a person of another color is weak and lazy. It’s racism and bigotry at the very least. I’ll just pray for you that you can get this obvious hatred out of your head and that you’re forgiven for having even said what you did on a public forum, thus cultivating the continual bigotry against fat people. I may not be fat any longer, but I will never forget, either. I am a peaceful person who is involved in social justice; however, when such ignorance hits cyberspace, my pitchfork comes out of the closet.

  32. BTW, I really miss Tim on Dog’s show. It just isn’t the same. I really have lost a lot of interest in it. Is he coming back? I’m sure he needed his time to reflect and get used to his life that has been bestowed upon him. I hope he’s doing better now and that he’ll get back. Otherwise, I think the show will end up being cancelled. Many people I’ve spoken with feel the same way …

    Society is really screwed up isnt it. Religous Flakes and Politicians have us all wound up over sex and the body parts we have been born with that your afraid to touch yourself when you pee today.
    Hey if the guy was knocking one out, he was in the privacy of his vehicle, which had tinted windows, not flashing some girl on the street.
    What a load (lmao) of wasted tax money, court time and prosecutor footwork.
    Should have been a stiff (LOL) fine and a don’t do it again at the most.
    Arrest his cheating whore wife. Shes the one should be in court, and jail.

    TIMS WIFE IS A HOE N E WAYS. UGLY SLUT…..

  35. i think youngblood is a sexcase and him and duanelee should get their tongues outta dogs arse.I know that its standard for canines to sniff eachothers rings but these two are too much.

  36. Dog Clan Fan said:

    I don’t believe for a minute that Tim was guilty of the charge. My heart goes out to him on the sad news of his impending divorce. I thought they were a good couple, obviously she doesn’t have the same values as the family.

  37. Patti said:

    It’s great to see Tim back on the show. I’ve started watching A&E again. I was doing my own little protest against A&E when they took the entire show off the air several years back. I found it very interesting that even though they had cancelled the show because of Dog purportedly making what was singled out as a racial slur, and it was, A&E continued to sell Dog merchandise while the show was off the air. Then, I guess, the corporate hierarchy saw that, without the show, the merchandise probably wasn’t selling so quickly, thereby putting Dog back on the air. That’s probably why they didn’t cancel the show again when Tim was arrested for the purported sexual indecency charge. All is forgiven in the corporate world when money is involved, isn’t it?

  38. hi am from the uk i think dog the bounty hunter is brill but where is tim its been 2years now would love 2 see him back love u all xx

    Why would anyone think that was true when tim could have any woman he wanted

  42. I think the show was at is best when Tim was on it. But to the few of you on here who think he should just up and leave his children have evidently never been in that situation before. Being a single mom to 4 kids for 10 years now I think its wonderful that he chooses to man up and take responsibility of raising those young kids alone. Most men wouldnt step up for 1 much less 4!! Hopefully it can be arranged for him to appear in the Hawaii episodes and stay on the islands while they go to Colorado. It would be even better if he was able to find him a good woman who culd be trusted to help him raise them and make him happy again, and one that will not betray him like his ex-wife apparently did. ( I know one here in Tennessee who would jump at the chance) LOL :)
    Also for the small minded formerly obese but still miserable man who was trashing Beth. Although being obese or overweight can come from being lazy, there are also many other reasons such as heredity or metabolism. Being a nurse for 16 years and also being obese at one time in my life I know this first hand. And although I am by no means obese any longer I am not and never will be skinny. I was born with hips, a butt, and breasts and am happy I was. I have no lack of compliments about my shape or figure and after many years of hiding behind the baggy clothes flaunt my curves with the best of them just as Beth does. It sound to me that even though you may not be obese anymore you still seem really unhappy, because I believe if you had any peace in your life or any human kindness toward ppl who arent the norm your opionion would not be so harsh. I personally think Beth is beautiful and love her clothes. She is tough when she needs to be but still has a heart and will fight in a second for her family, this is just like I am and where I am from thats the way to be!! Cant wait for more Dog and the family!!! Good luck Yougblood and dont forget if you are ever in TN look this girl up!! LOL

  43. Please bring Tim back it’s really not the same without him…and hes been through enough with his wifes affair…give him a break as dog gives people a break…..
