Some makers of television shows and movies need to be lured to shoot in Colorado by state incentives: Witness the folks behind a new flick set to star Ashton Kutcher. But others just show up, including Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman and his wife Beth, who've been in town for the past few weeks getting material for the new season of their CMT show Dog and Beth: On the Hunt.

Not that cops had any idea a car chase that zoomed through parts of Lakewood yesterday was bound for small screens -- or that it would end in a barrage of pepper balls.

Dakota Chapman, Dog's grandson and a regular on the show, has been documenting the family's stay in Colorado on his Instagram account, with a focus on natural wonders. Here, for instance, is a shot of Dakota, a native of Hawaii, experiencing our recent snowfall....

This peaceful image came after a bit of excitement on and near the 1700 block of South Pierce Street.

According to 9News, the Chapmans were trying to round up David Anderson, a no-show in court a few weeks back, when their quarry rabbited, prompting a car chase that ended with the suspect drawing fire from a Taser and a weapon shooting pepper balls.

Shortly thereafter, the Lakewood Police Department got an inaccurate report of shots fired and responded in force, having had no heads-up that Dog and company were doing their thing -- not that the bounty hunters were required to do so, although Beth says they'll try to give officers a heads-up in the future.

The footage is expected to show up on CMT in the next few months. But here's a preview via 7News coverage of the incident.

It's not the first time he's been here. He was out in unincorporated Arapahoe County district 5 at least 6 or 7 years ago causing problems. I remember LT. Torrez had to get called out because he wanted the 5 deputies to transport for him and they refused. You catch em you clean em.

Actually, in Colorado bounty hunters are not required to inform the police when they are hunting a suspect. This is just according to this article; I didn't bother to look into it further.

These lowlife white trash scumbags should be put in Prison for their crimes ... and on general principle.


A "bounty hunter" has no authority in Colorado to break ANY LAW during the apprehension of their target, so any CAR CHASES, or Disturbing the Peace, or Endangering the Public, or using Weapons (Tasers / Pepper Guns, etc)  in an offensive manner is ILLEGAL. 


In this instance the Public was Clearly Endangered by their behavior


Being that Dogface is a CONVICTED FELON -- murder -- he cannot legally possess a Firearm, Ammunition, nor Body Armor. Nor can he possess / use ANY OTHER dangerous weapon under Colorado law.


This scumbag should also be Extradited to Mexico to "face justice" for the crimes he committed there.

@DonkeyHotay  Well, the Mexico thing was pretty justified in my book.  That Luster dude is bad dude.


The Mexican charges against Dog were dropped.
