Lawsuit Against 'Dog' The Bounty Hunter Goes To Mediation

Colorado Springs Man Sues Duane 'Dog' Chapman For False Arrest

A man arrested by Duane "Dog" Chapman has taken his lawsuit against the television bounty hunter and his crew to mediation.

Hoang Minh Phung Nguyen contends that Chapman, his sons Duane Chapman II and Leland Blane Chapman and local bail bondsman Bobby Brown defamed him and had him falsely arrested, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.

The newspaper said Chapman and Brown arrested Nguyen in 2009 when he was wanted on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a domestic violence case.

Chapman's crew said Nguyen fired a gun at them, and police arrested him on suspicion of attempted murder and menacing, but prosecutors later declined to file charges, the newspaper said.

According to the lawsuit, Nguyen lost his job in Colorado Springs as a result of the incident and had to relocate.

If mediation fails to produce a settlement, the case is set for trial on Nov. 28.
