Bounty hunter leaves out spat with Colorado sheriff

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 06:49 a.m. HST, Jan 12, 2012

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. >> Duane "Dog" Chapman may get the last word in a spat with a Colorado sheriff over an arrest involving pepper spray.

The "Dog the Bounty Hunter" episode broadcast Wednesday on A&E omits the dispute he had with Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey after a fugitive's arrest.

Hilkey told the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel  he didn't watch the show.

The sheriff criticized Chapman last summer, saying he excessively pepper-sprayed a fugitive and then took him into the sheriff's office without first decontaminating the man.

Surveillance videos in the Grand Junction sheriff's lobby show people having coughing fits, backing up Hilkey's claim.

Though the show made no mention of the squabble, Chapman's wife, Beth Chapman, tweeted Thursday: "So does anyone think the Mesa sheriff was right?"

End that idiodic show already..or at least have dog and dogs wife shut the stupid sounding fake pidgin accent. I'm not saying pidgin is stupid, because it's not. It's when you try hard to imitate it, (dog and his wife) makes a mockery of Hawaii's uniqueness. Locals know what I mean. Plus that show does nothing positive for the image of the State.

The Dog and his female side kick are bullies! People need to stop idolizing him and maybe he will go back under the rock he crawled out of. He is an embarrassment to Hawaii and all carbon based life forms!

Yeah SA.....how about some follow up. I think that was nearly two years ago wasn't it. What happened to the guy. The funny part was when he was arrested, he didn't use Dog's bail bond company.

I just hosted 2 visitors from Idaho who are under the impression that ALL local people, aka, people from Hawaii, are like all the meth heads they show on the Dog show. They were afraid to leave Hickam base, I had to go pick them up and drag them out to the North Shore and the like. Of course, they met "real" local people then, hard-working tax-paying generous and friendly people that most of us are. They left Hawaii with a whole different impression than they get from the show.

Mahalo braddah for showing your friends the real hawaiian aloha. Too bad shows like dog and his tita make us look really bad. They always try to sound like they doing the locals a favor, but they not. Not as long as the showing it on TV!

It's all for show. This dog don't hunt. All he does is chase drug addicts. Da drug addicts already at a disadvantage. He should try chasing somebody dat might shoot at him and really run for your kala. Like I said "This dog don't hunt". They just using Hawaii and da people. Just like they did back in 1893.

Please change Hawaii law to exclude felons from having a bounty hunter liocense. This would remove this problem.

I can't believe that an ex con is allowed to wear a badge and parade around as a pseudo sheriff. He's not allowed to carry a gun but yet he is allowed to carry a pepper spray. What is wrong with this country?

The dog is just another older smaller man trying to look younger and make like he is tough to make up for his lack of stature. Him and his top heavy wife trying to act and talk local is an embarassment and disrespectful of Hawaii. End his show, it has no value or merit. Please media do not give them any air time, ignore them so that their show goes away.....

I think on the mainland they call them "trailer trash". In the old south they called them carpet baggers. In Hawaii we could classify them along with other "invasive species".

Like Augie T said in his act, local people watch to see if they see any of their family or friends. They do bring the spiritual part when they try to help local people in hard times but I do agree that the show can be negative. This is how they make their living and that is the American way people, like it or not. God Bless
