Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Daughter Abuse Allegations: Update on Charges, Jail Time

by Matthew Wilson

Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter Lyssa Chapman has found out whether she’ll have to face any jail time for harassing her girlfriend. The reality star reportedly took a plea deal to avoid the jailhouse and won’t serve any time in prison.

According to TMZ, Chapman pled no contest to the two harassment charges. As a result of the plea deal, Chapman will have to pay a total of $535 in fines. But the reality star is probably glad she won’t be spending time in a cell. According to the plea deal, Chapman must follow a number of rules for the next six months and must stay out of further trouble as a result. For instance, she cannot leave her current town of O’ahu unless given permission by the court. She also cannot commit any state or federal crimes.

Previously, Chapman plead not guilty to the harassment counts.

Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Daughter Arrested

Back in January 2020, police arrested Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter Lyssa in Honolulu. The officers charged the reality star with both harassment and resisting arrest. Chapman posted bail for $600 afterward.

Authorities responded to a fight that Chapman and her girlfriend got into. According to Chapman, she tried to stop authorities from entering her room. But the officer twisted her arm and arrested her without provocation. She said at the time that she planned to report the officers for misconduct. But it’s unknown if Chapman followed through with this threat.

Officers officially charged Chapman with two harassment counts, both misdemeanors in the state. While she was arrested for resisting arrest, authorities didn’t charge her with that count. Chapman starred alongside her father Dog the Bounty Hunter in the reality show “Dog the Bounty Hunter” between 2004 and 2012.

Her father has faced a bit of trouble recently himself. Duane Chapman’s newest reality show “Dog Unleashed”  was shelved and reportedly canceled before making it to air. The show would have featured Dog the Bounty Hunter going up against murderers and hardened criminals. But the show was reportedly canceled due to a breach of contract on Dog’s part.

Lyssa Chapman wasn’t involved in the production of “Dog Unleashed” or his previous series “Dog’s Most Wanted” as well. That series only lasted for a single season and featured a mostly retired Dog the Bounty Hunter taking on cases. The show explored his wife Beth Chapman’s cancer diagnosis and fight and was the last show to feature her before her death.
