Fugitive Chase Made Famous By Bounty Hunter To Air This Weekend

By FOX 47 News. CREATED May 7, 2013

The story of a wanted Jackson man that got a lot of attention from "Dog the Bounty Hunter" is coming to prime time.

Duane "Dog" Chapman and his wife Beth came to Jackson last fall to help find Ricky Wheeldon, a fugitive who skipped out on his criminal racketeering trial last May.

Wheeldon was eventually captured after five months on the run. The Chapmans were called to assist local bondsmen from Leo's Bail Bonds in Mason, who issued the bond for Wheeldon before he skipped town.

That case will be the basis for the next episode of "Dog and Beth: On the Hunt", which is set to air Sunday, May 12 at 8pm on CMT.
