Judge Nixes Move To Charge 'Bounty Hunter' Star

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A judge has denied a request to force prosecutors to charge TV bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman with felonies for claiming that a man fired a gun at him and his crew while they were filming in Colorado.

State District Judge J. Patrick Kelly ruled Monday against public defender William Schoewe (show-ee).

Schoewe claimed that Chapman and others falsely accused his client, Hoang Nguyen (hwong win), of shooting at them in Colorado Springs when they were trying to apprehend him April 21. Schoewe alleged that Chapman was trying to get publicity for the A&E Television reality show "Dog The Bounty Hunter."

Charges were dropped against Nguyen because of weak evidence and conflicting statements.
