Beth Chapman, known for her role in the reality show “Dog The Bounty Hunter,” is in a medically induced coma in the intensive care unit of Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, local station KGMB reports reports.
Chapman, 51, is a bail bond agent who is married to fellow reality star Duane "Dog" Chapman. Their work was documented for years on the reality show “Dog The Bounty Hunter,” which ran on A&E from 2004 to 2012. It featured them tracking down bail fugitives in both Colorado and Hawaii.
"Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you," her husband tweeted on Sunday.
The couple got married in 2006 three seasons into “Dog The Bounty Hunter.” Their wedding was featured on the show. More recently the couple was featured on a new show, filmed in Hawaii, called "Dog & Beth: On the Hunt.”
Chapman had throat cancer in 2017, which was revealed during an A&E special "Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives." After a seemingly successful treatment, the cancer returned last year. She underwent emergency surgery as a result, KGMB reported. She was hospitalized again this year because of fluid accumulation in her lungs, CBS reports.
In a promo for an upcoming WGN show “"Dog's Most Wanted,” her husband states, "my wife, the love of my life, is fighting for her life, and instead of being at home helping her, I'm out here looking for you. So I'm warning you in advance: May God have mercy on you when I catch you. Because I won't.”
Beth’s website states that she raised 12 children with her husband and that she spent nearly three decades working in the bail bond business.
