Local bail bondsman levels suit at cable network

Long time bail bondsman and bounty hunter Bobby Brown is out just trying to get what he feels he is due for the hard work he put in working with television networks A&E on the Dog the Bounty Hunter series. Brown states he appeared in more than 40 episodes and claims it was he that had laid the initial foundations of the show.

Brown worked with Duane "The Dog" Chapman and Beth Chapman in tracking several bail jumpers in and around Colorado. Brown himself a long standing family friendship with the Chapmans.

The lawsuit was filed last Wednesday against A&E, D&D Television and Hybrid Films claiming that after more than 40 appearances, Brown was paid only $6,000.00 while the show grossed over $400 million. The show is filmed in Hawaii and Colorado and Brown stated that Chapman promised Brown that he would be a "full-time member" of the cast.

KOAA News 5 spoke with brown over the phone and Brown stated his attorneys have instructed him not to go into any details of the case that may jeopardize the outcome. He did tell News 5 that he would be available for an interview soon. Our attempts to reach the A&E network have gone unanswered.
