The 35-year-old stepdaughter of celebrity bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman will be arraigned Thursday in Circuit Court on a new drug charge.
Nicole “Nickie” Gillespie was arrested last week on North Vineyard Boulevard near Foster Botanical Garden on an outstanding warrant and promotion of a dangerous drug. She remains in custody unable to post bail of $65,000.
The bench warrant was issued in April after she left a drug treatment facility without authorization earlier that month.
In January, Gillespie pleaded no contest to second-degree theft for allegedly robbing the Territorial Savings Bank in downtown Honolulu on Sept. 3. Police said she passed a note to a teller at the Bishop Street bank saying money should be placed in an envelope.
The case initially was classified as a robbery, but prosecutors amended the charge since there was no threat or use of force.
Gillespie was granted supervised release to enter a drug facility, according to the prosecutor’s office. Sentencing was set for April but postponed to August.
Chapman starred in the A&E TV series “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” and Gillespie is the daughter of one of his ex-wives.
