'Dog' accused of lying about shooting


POSTED: Saturday, May 30, 2009

DENVER » A public defender is demanding that TV bounty hunter Duane “;Dog”; Chapman be charged with felonies for claiming that a man fired a gun at him and his crew while they were filming in Colorado Springs last month.

Attorney William Schoewe alleges Chapman and others made up the claim to boost publicity for the A&E reality show “;Dog the Bounty Hunter.”;

Prosecutors dropped charges against a suspect, saying the evidence was insufficient.

Schoewe filed a motion yesterday asking a judge to force prosecutors to charge Chapman and others with attempting to influence a public servant and false reporting.

Chapman's publicist, Mona Wood, says he is in Canada and unavailable to comment. Wood says Chapman swears the man shot at his crew.
