Everyone's favoritest bounty hunter, Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter won custody of his Grandson earlier this week after audio tapes of Travis Jr. taking beating from his father, Big Travis Mimms, were leaked.
Chapman says that the alleged beating resulted after "Little" Travis told his classmates at school that his father, 6-foot-9-inch tall Travis Senior, was beating him.
Dog tells Entertainment Tonight, his first reaction upon discovering the audio tape. He said:
"I was in LA at Gene Simmons' wedding and I got the tape emailed to me. It was overwhelming to me and I got mad. I instantly thought, I can't wait to get my hands around "Big" Travis' throat but then I am trained enough to know not to do that."
Despite his temptation, Chapman held his composure and did the lawful thing and went through government channels to have "Little" Travis taken from "Big" Travis.
"I felt like [there] was a bounty on ["Big"] Travis. But I thought, this is your grandson, there's no bounty. When I caught ["Big" Travis] I got the same feeling only this was my love, my grandson. I felt like, wow, I got him."
Want matters now is little Travis is safe, with people that love him.
Dog The Bounty Hunter returns to A&E on Wednesday, December 14 at 9PM/8PM Central.
