Honolulu HI. Jan 5 2008
One of the stars of the reality TV show “Dog the Bounty Hunter” was arrested today on suspicion of attempted murder and indecent exposure. Tim Chapman, who works alongside Duane “Dog” Chapman as a bounty hunter, turned himself in to Honolulu police this afternoon. The arrest stems from an incident last night in an Ala Moana parking lot.Last night, Ala Moana Center security guards were notified that a naked man was performing lewd acts in his pick-up truck in the Bank of Hawaii parking lot.Police say a security guard approached the truck, told the man to put on his clothes then get out of his vehicle. Police say the man put on his clothes, then started up his truck, hopped the sidewalk, almost hitting the security guard. He then took off.The security guard recognized the driver as Tim Chapman from the hit reality show “Dog the Bounty Hunter.”"It seems funny to me they would so something like this. I hope it’s not true,” said Larry Gardiner, a “Dog the Bounty Hunter” fan. Police checked Tim Chapman’s Hawaii Kai home, but were told he’s separated from his wife and has been living out of his truck. Then around 2:30 this afternoon, Tim Chapman turned himself in to Honolulu police.Chapman’s attorney Brook Hart says it’s all a misunderstanding. “Tim Chapman was driving in the Ala Moana, Kapioplani Blvd. area when he inadvertently spilled some orange juice, orange drink or liquid in his lap, and he got all wet so looked for a place for some privacy,” said Brook Hart, Tim Chapman’s attorney.Hart says Tim Chapman was not performing lewd acts.”He was merely changing from one pants to another when a security guard came and yelled at him to get out of his car. Tim panicked and drove over the curb and left the area,” said Hart.Tim Chapman was booked on suspicion of indecent exposure, and attempted murder for nearly running over the security guard. Although, police say he may be charged with terroristic threatening instead. Tim Chapman remains at the Honolulu Police Department’s main cell block tonight, pending charges.
