DOG the Bounty Hunter’s son Tucker Chapman was sentenced to 18 years in jail for armed robbery in 2007.
He was released on parole after four years.
Tucker has had a tumultuous relationship with his father but maintains a good relationship with his sister Lyssa.
Who is Dog the Bounty Hunter’s son Tucker?
Tucker Chapman is one of Dog the Bounty Hunter’s 12 children.
Dog shares Tucker and his daughter Lyssa with his third ex-wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain (née Greene).
Dog’s relationship with Tucker has strained over the last few years, beginning when Tucker sold a secret tape of Dog in ranting racistly about Tucker’s ex-girlfriend, who was black, to the National Enquirer in 2007.
“I don’t care if she’s a Mexican, a whore, whatever,” Dog told his son on the tape.
Who is Dog the Bounty Hunter?
Dog the Bounty hunter starred on his own reality show of the same name on A&E.
- Duane “Dog” Chapman, 67, is an American bounty hunter and former bail bondsman – who is best known for his reality TV show Dog the Bounty Hunter.
- He was born in February 1953 in Denver, Colorado, USA
- In 1976 Duane was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to five years in a Texas prison.
- Dog has been married five times.
“It’s not because she’s black. It’s because we use the word n****r sometimes here. I’m not going to take a chance ever in life of losing everything I’ve worked for, for 30 years, because some (expletive) n****r heard us saying ‘n****r.’”
Dog’s show was briefly suspended from A&E as a result. It returned the following year after he apologized on CNN’s Larry King Live.
It’s not the first time Dog hasn’t approved of his son’s relationship.
Dog – who is engaged to Francie Frane – claimed he fell out with Tucker again recently because he didn’t think his son’s girlfriend was a good influence on him.
He said: “I tried to take control of his life. I heard this girl [Tucker’s then-girlfriend] was maybe not being the best for Tucker – and I’ll leave it like that – so I tried to interfere.
“He’s on parole for a 20 year sentence and if he messes up he goes back.”
What happened to him?
Dog – real name Duane Chapman – revealed back in 2007 that Tucker was sentenced to 18 years in jail for armed robbery as a teenager.
He went to jail at just 18-years-old.
He was released on parole after four years locked up.
What did Lyssa say about Tucker?
Lyssa, 33, said she “misses and loves” Tucker, 36, while sharing a throwback with her sibling.
She captioned it: “Please say a prayer for my brother. Miss and love TUCKER CHAPMAN.”
The fitness fanatic added the hashtags: “#chapmansforlife #mybrotherskeeper #broham.”
Lyssa’s followers flooded the comments with their support, with one of them writing: “Thinking of you Tucker.”
Lyssa responded with two love heart emojis to another user expressing their concern.
The mother-of-two did not explain why she wanted “prayers” for her brother.
