Fame Is A Bitch For ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’

HAWAII (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When you’re a bounty hunter named “Dog,” fame can be a real bitch.

Just ask Leland Chapman, the 28-year-old son of Duane “Dog,” Chapman, star of the reality hit, Dog The Bounty Hunter.

Leland says there are times when he and Dad are working undercover and people keep asking for autographs.

Even worse: He says there are times when they’re driving after a criminal and get followed by carloads of people who want to see the bust live.

But while there’s a price for the fame, Leland also takes advantage of the perks.

He calls defendants who’ve watched the show and says, “Yo, you better turn yourself in or my Dad and I are coming to get you” and says the crooks show up the next day at 8 a.m. sharp.

Dog The Bounty Hunter airs Tuesdays on A&E.
