Dog the Bounty Hunter Captures Alabama Man



ROBERTSDALE,
Ala. (WPMI) Dog the Bounty Hunter of reality show fame made his way to Baldwin
County Wednesday.

After days of chasing a local felon, Dog brought the man back
to face jail time. There were cameras everywhere.

"I watch it all the
time. I love Dog and Beth," said Jessica Claridy who stopped to take a
look.

"I used to work at a bail bonds so I like the show and I'm a fan
too," said Elizabeth Finch.

That's right, Dog The Bounty Hunter and his
wife Beth both in town as part of their "Back to Bama" segment for an
upcoming "Dog and Beth On The Hunt" reality series.

"You know we
do this for a living tax payer free so this defendant is back in custody,"
said Duane 'Dog' Chapman.

On the run and caught by dog was 24-year-old
Christian Gully. He was first arrested in Baldwin County back in 2011.

"He's been on the run for 600 days. He is wanted for two counts of drug
possession," said Beth Chapman.

Turns out Gully wasn't even on local law
enforcements radar even after skipping court and skipping town. Gully was busy
rapping online and posting pictures of himself too.

"Social networking
helps a lot these days. People recklessly post themselves on Facebook and
Instagram," said Chapman.

He's not really that bad of guy either, but by
jumping bail, the Fast Feet Bonding Company in Robertsdale was about to be shut
down but with gully back in jail now.

"This is a shock that he's here now.
And we are now on our road to being reinstated so we can be back in
business," said owner Gage Huffstutler.

"I'm sorry. I'm highly
sorry," said Gully.

Apologetic and now willing to reform his life too.

"I didn't know all this was happening. If I had known I would have handled
my business. I didn't know i was jeopardizing somebody else's life," said
Gully.

"I would like to see in one year where you are at I really would.
You don't know how many kids will listen to what you said," said 'Dog' Chapman.

So, all's well that ends well. Only Gully will have to spend a little more time
in the slammer. And Dog The Bounty Hunter will likely get a ratings boost in
return.

The episode featuring Gully's arrest will air on CMT sometime in June.
