Beth Chapman is on the wrong side of the law this time.
Police in Monument, Colorado, have issued an arrest warrant for the wife of reality star Dog the Bounty Hunter for allegedly berating a high school student and her boyfriend. Beth denies the charge.
A police report said that Beth Chapman called the girl a “tramp, slut, and whore” and that the verbal assault continued even after the girl walked over to her friend’s car.
The 45-year-old Chapman told RadarOnline.com it went down a bit differently. She said the incident started when the young man drove “dangerously close” to her two children, who are 12 and 14 years old, and her 11-year-old grandson.
“The passenger emerged from the vehicle — she was young and dressed inappropriately, drinking beer, and obviously out for a good time. I told her and the driver, ‘You need to slow down or I will call the cops,’ ” Chapman said.
“She began to laugh and smirk and then told me, ‘These cops won’t do anything!’ I told her if they didn’t slow down, I’d call anyway,” Beth added.
It was actually Beth Chapman who called the police, though for a different reason. She said two men approached asking for autographs, and after she noticed they had concealed firearms she inquired if they had conceal carry permits and then asked that the two leave. Chapman called police to ask how conceal carry permits applied to public areas with children, prompting a visit from officers.
But when police showed up, the tables turned and Beth and her husband were the ones under scrutiny.
“[The men] said as they were leaving, Beth started yelling (at the girl) again, saying, ‘You better run away you little tramp,’ ” the police report reads. “The male carrying the firearm said the whole Chapman family left the area right after that and as they were leaving, one of the black Suburbans occupied by the Chapmans, nearly backed into his new Mustang and then ‘peeled out’ as they left.”
Gary Lozow, attorney for Beth Chapman, said she hopes the incident will go away after an investigation by law enforcement. If that doesn’t happen Beth is ready to go through the court system, Lozow said.
