Fugitive Chase Made Famous By Bounty Hunter To Air This Weekend

The story of a wanted Jackson man that got a lot of attention from "Dog the Bounty Hunter" is coming to prime time.

Duane "Dog" Chapman and his wife Beth came to Jackson last fall to help find Ricky Wheeldon, a fugitive who skipped out on his criminal racketeering trial last May.

Wheeldon was eventually captured after five months on the run. The Chapmans were called to assist local bondsmen from Leo's Bail Bonds in Mason, who issued the bond for Wheeldon before he skipped town.

That case will be the basis for the next episode of "Dog and Beth: On the Hunt", which is set to air Sunday, May 12 at 8pm on CMT.

    These people needs to look up the definition of trespassing!! They might not have that where they come from... but this surely isn't Hawaii.

    Whats to show? They did not catch him!These redneck inbreds just need to shut up and go away. Their 15 minutes of fame ran out about 10 minutes ago.

    Great! They didn't do anything but go to Michigan and run their mouths and aggravate Ricky Wheeldon's family members, while Law Enforcement found Ricky Wheeldon. I guess they did not get enough of running their mouths in Michigan, so they are going to do it again on TV. Wonderful! Rick.
