'Dog the Bounty Hunter' reveals wife Beth tasered a suspect just a week before her death
Earlier this year, Dog the Bounty Hunter, aka Duane Chapman, lost his beloved wife Beth. Beth Chapman appeared alongside her spouse in the popular reality series, which saw the married couple hunt bounties and chase down criminals.
Sadly, Beth had been living with throat cancer since 2017. She was placed in a medically-induced coma after a choking incident following a series of operations on her oesophagus and died on the morning of Wednesday, June 26. She was just 51-years-old.
In an emotional Twitter post following her mother's death, Beth's daughter Bonnie wrote: "Love you forever mom. You’ve got a halo now ... I’ll never forget you, mama. You were such a strong woman, and you taught me to always be strong."
She added: "You were strong for everyone, and you taught me it’s okay to let go. I’d never thought I’d lose my mom at 20. I told her I thought she had a couple years left, but in her eyes she disagreed."
However, in in a promotional interview with Fox News for his new show, Dog's Most Wanted, the bounty hunter revealed that his spouse went out fighting, and was still busting perps a week before her untimely death.
In the clip, Dog says that the programme will portray the final stays of Beth's life, stating: "The week before she went to heaven she put a guy in jail. Shot him - tasered him - didn't give him a chance."
Dog continued: "Credit where credit's due. She wanted to go ahead and do the show. She said 'This is my life and I'm going to show every bit of it'. She battled it for two years. Beat it once and then it came back very aggressive."
He added: "We want to be truthful and show different sides. We showed the real Chapman family. Each child takes it rough and each child is doing better. Allegedly time heals all wounds, but I don't know about this one."
Rest in Peace Beth Chapman.
