Chapman ends up in United's doghouse

Tbddog051007 Duane “Dog” Chapman will want to stay away from United Airlines. The bounty hunter was on a flight leaving the gate from L.A. to Denver earlier this week when a flight attendant nudged the sleeping Chapman to tell him to put on his seat belt, the National Enquirer says. Chapman’s wife, Beth Smith, responded by screaming and cursing at the attendant.

The pilot was notified and the plane went right back to the gate, where six airport police told Chapman, Smith and two family members to get off the plane. No arrests were made and the quartet were rebooked on another flight, but Dog seemed sheepish about the whole affair. “After the family was escorted off the plane, Dog apologized to everyone involved,” a source said. Because he know dealing with trashy people is a lousy job, probably.
