The "Dog the Bounty Hunter" star chalked it down to the psychological trauma losing his wife Beth Chapman brought. He said,

"I think basically, I had a broken heart."

Adding with optimism,

"And of course it's going to heal."


The TV star noted that the issues he is dealing with did not help his medical state. He informed the news outlet that at the time of his hospitalization, the pain in his chest felt like he just finished running 3 to 4 miles non-stop.

Duane acknowledged that although his first round of test didn't show any anomalies with his heart, he knows something is not right. But he equally conceded that "These things happen."



A lot of things have been happening in the TV star's life since his wife passed. During his hospitalization, his doctors ruled out a heart attack after his angiogram came back normal. However, Duane's blood pressure and stress levels were high, and are the possible cause for the chest pain.

The TV star who told People in August that he and his children were barely making it, got released from the hospital on Tuesday. The "Dog Most Wanted" star's rep in a statement at the time assured his fans that, "Dog is back home and resting comfortably."

Duane will undergo more tests to rule out any underlying health condition, but his fans and family can rest easy with the knowledge that for now, he is hale and hearty.
