Duane 'Dog' Chapman and Wife Beth Bust a Fugitive Wanted for the Alleged Sexual Battery of a Child
America's most beloved bounty hunters are soon to be back on the small screen and they have already hauled their first captive off to jail.
Duane "The Dog" Chapman and wife Beth Chapman were in Covington, Louisiana where they caught the fugitive Jinel Sexton of Abita Springs.
Faced with rape charges including sexual battery on a child, Sexton was arrested on September 12, 2018. He was released on a $200,000 bond at the time.
Tammany Parish officials had a warrant out for Sexton's arrest. Duane and Beth went on a four-day manhunt before finally catching the 39-year-old.
A camera crew for "Dog's Most Wanted" surrounded the Chapman's as they caught Sexton and handed him over to the Covington authorities. He is now being held without bond at the jail.
Beth posted a picture of the event to her Facebook account with the caption:
"Dog the Bounty Hunter & his Wife, Beth Chapman, Negotiated the Surrender of an Accused Rapist and Fugitive During Filming of their new WGN America Series, 'Dogs Most Wanted.' "
Beth is spotted in her signature black heels as she films the television comeback meant to help the family cover her medical bills. The beloved reality star was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in December 2018.
The news came nearly a year after Beth was declared cancer-free following her first scare with the disease. Sadly, a rush to the hospital due to throat blockage announced its return.
Despite her grim chances, Beth opted to take on her popular role on the WGN show alongside her husband. The couple confirmed the show's return back in January of this year.
Beth roused fans in hopes of getting the show trending on social media. She wrote:
"Let’s show @wgnamerica how we make Dogs Most Wanted #DogWgna trend #DogPound let’s get busy are you happy to have us back let’s roll it guys."
The show is set to premiere in Spring of this year. It will be a ten-part series showing as Duane and Beth round up criminals wanted by the FBI, the US Marshals, and those on the Most Wanted Fugitive List.
The couple began their stint on television in 2004 with "Dog The Bounty Hunter" on A&E. After eight seasons, it wrapped up in 2012. But not before many had fallen in love with the colorful pair.
Duane's blonde braids captured fans' hearts. Their family dynamics were also captivating. Duane's son Leland didn't know who his father was until he became a teenager and went to live with him.
Another of his children, Lyssa Chapman got married in 2009, only to divorce three years later. Beth is actually Duane's fifth wife and they share only two children together. Beth has also been married before.
We look forward to seeing the full hunt on the show in the coming Spring. Of course, we also send Beth prayers and hope that she is able to recover once again.
