LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Lyssa Chapman gets arrested in the Dog the Bounty Hunter new dramatic episode this week. Lyssa Chapman was arrested in March 2011, an arrest that dominated news at the time. But until last night, Bounty Hunter fans had never seen the Chapman Family’s reaction to Lyssa being arrested, and their reaction to seeing her mugshot photo across national news.
After Lyssa Chapman (photos below) was arrested, Lyssa was initially confronted by Leland. Sitting in the backseat of the family’s Mercedes, Lyssa listens as Leland and Beth tell what happened the night before. Beth exclaims “every … f-ing news channel is calling”. Lyssa confessed to Beth and Leland that she blacked out, woke up in the jail, and doesn’t remember anything from that night.
Lyssa says “I don’t remember anything. I woke up in the jail cell.” Leland says Lyssa’s conduct wasn’t just bad prior to the arrest but also after the arrest. Leland states “All the cops when I was bailing you out Lyssa, they were all telling them you were telling them ‘f- you’ and calling them all kinds of names.”
Beth and Leland then told Lyssa that she is lucky she didn’t get injured or given more charges. Beth says “you were lucky you were not tasered by those officers.” Leland adds “you were too drunk because you were breaking out other people’s windows fighting with the police.”
Beth then confronts Lyssa with even worse news. “The cops said you were the most disrespectful person they had arrested in quite some time.” Leland added “you are lucky they didn’t charge you with resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.”
Back at home, Dog is furious but also in tears. “Come here Lyssa.” “Dog, I don’t know what happened, I blacked out.” Dog responds “I turn on the TV, your mugshot is there. I look at those photos there and it says ‘dog’s daughter’.” He adds “again I can’t do this. I cannot do this. I cannot. you are going to have to be suspended for a little bit.”
Lyssa Chapman was arrested on Kawaihae Street in Hawaii Kai at about 3:30 AM on March 16, 2011. She was charged with criminal property damage and harassment. At the time, news reports claimed that no one came to pay Lyssa’s $400 bail immediately. The arrest was weeks after her divorce from husband Brahman “Bo” Galanti.
