Oklahoman Sued for Libel by Wife of ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’

The wife of reality TV star “Dog the Bounty Hunter” is suing a former Fort Gibson, Okla.-area bondsman for libel.

Beth Chapman claims that Lionel “Lenny” Biggers coordinated a “rampage of character attacks” against her on social media. The Tahlequah Daily Press reports that she’s seeking more than $75,000 in damages.

Chapman accuses Biggers of posting comments on social media in an effort to damage her reputation. She alleges that Biggers is seeking revenge because he believes that she and her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, ruined his business, Renegade Fugitive Recovery.

The lawsuit says Biggers has posted comments accusing the Chapmans of breaking laws. It says the comments have exposed Beth Chapman to embarrassment and humiliation.

Biggers couldn’t be reached for comment.
