'Dog the Bounty Hunter' greets hundreds of fans at a Christmas meetup amid Beth’s cancer battle
On Sunday, reality star Duane “Dog” Chapman made time to meet with his fans. He was at the Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs for a holiday appearance titled, “Dog is Coming to Town.”
There, hundreds of fans lined up to snap pictures with the star. His wife, Beth Chapman, wasn’t around as she battles the return of her cancer.
Lucky “Dog the Bounty Hunter” fans got to meet and greet Duane “Dog” Chapman this past weekend. If Chapel Hills Mall had a Santa Claus available that Sunday, Duane definitely upstaged him with attention.
Hundreds of his fans lined up patiently waiting to take photos with the star. Some lucky fans even received autographs from the famous bounty hunter.

On November 30, Duane was accused of assaulting a teenage boy following a confrontation at a Colorado airport. At the time, the star was with his wife who was in a wheelchair.
Video footage showed, the husband and wife team waiting for an elevator when a teenager, his father, and another man approached them. The father and son began yelling and harassing the two stars.

According to the 17-year-old, the altercation occurred after he asked Duane for a photo. The star allegedly declined by shoving the teenager away.

The father and son later went to the police and accused the reality star of assault. Duane also plans to open his own case against the two as video footage revealed that the altercation never occurred.

The star’s family attorney, Andrew Brettler stated:
"There was no assault. A young man approached Dog at the Denver Airport in a very hostile and aggressive manner, clearly looking to start trouble. He insulted Dog and Beth, hurled racial slurs at Dog, and threatened to 'cut' Beth if she could 'get out of her wheelchair.' The Chapmans attempted to distance themselves from this individual, but he followed them to the elevator where he continued to shout profanities at them."
