A day after he was shot at by a murder suspect in Colorado, TV bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman described the thrill of the hunt to talk show host Larry King.
Suspect In Murder Case Fires At Duane “Dog” Chapman
When asked if he was scared when the shots were fired, Chapman told King, “Well yes sir kinda because he was out of range with the pepper gun. I don’t know if you should use the word scared, I was worried and very cautious, until after we got him apprehended.”
Chapman described the rush that comes with the life-or-death nature of his business.
“There’s so much adrenaline going when you see the guy,” he said. ” We had hunted him for two days, so when we spot him adrenaline kinda takes over the fear but adrenaline turns into stupidity if you don’t watch it.”
Chapman found the fugitive, Hoang Nguyen, at a nearby Toys R Us four hours later and took him into custody.
