Dog The Bounty Hunter's family drama has taken (another) tragic turn!
This mess goes back to 2006 when Duane Chapman aka Dog The Bounty Hunter suffered the loss of his daughter, Barbara-Katie Chapman. Before she passed away, she granted Dog the custody of her son to protect him from her drug abuse. After her death, baby-daddy Travis Mimms asked Dog if he could have a part in his son's life. Dog, being the cool guy he is, said sure! Not only that, but he even helped Travis out financially too. Travis eventually became the full-time caretaker of his son.
Everything seemed fine until last week when Travis put restraining order Dog. At the time we had no idea why, but now it seems Dog had reason to believe Travis was beating his grandson.
AND he has proof! Over the weekend a disturbing audio recording of the nine-year-old receiving a severe beating — allegedly from his father, was submitted to the court. The recoding is SO brutal the court immediately granted Chapman full custody of his grandson.
Dog said on the subject:
"We had to get Travis (junior) out of that situation. I was beaten by my father, too. But we have to break that cycle."
Now Dog has a restraining order against Travis.
Mess with Dog The Bounty Hunter: you're stupid. Beat a child: you're a totally dumbass!
Travis Sr. deservers to go to jail!!
