Dog The Bounty Hunter Denied Entry Into The U.K.
Duane "Dog The Bounty Hunter" Chapman has reportedly been denied entry into the U.K. due to his involvement with the 1976 murder of a Pampa, Texas man named Jerry Oliver. He was traveling to the country to begin shooting the newest season of the U.K.'s "Celebrity Big Brother."
According to contactmusic.com, Chapman was stopped at the border and denied entry into the country by the U.K. Border Agency. The Border Agency issued an official letter on their decision reading:
"Records show that you were convicted of one offence which carried a sentence of five years. According to those records, that conviction is not spent."
Chapman was, in fact, convicted and sentenced to five years on first-degree murder charges after one of his friends shot and killed Oliver during a drug deal. The reality star served 18 months of that sentence and has been very open about his conviction throughout his career.
