Dog’s Tim Chapman arrested for indecent exposure, charged with terroristic threatening

Timothy “Youngblood” Chapman, one of the stars on Dog the Bounty Hunter (although he’s not related to Duane Chapman), has been charged “with first-degree terroristic threatening yesterday and might also charge him with indecent exposure, a spokesman for the Honolulu prosecutor’s office said,” according to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. He “was initially arrested on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder and indecent exposure,” and was released on bail Friday.

Security guards “responded to a report of a man fondling himself in a vehicle at” a parking lot, and “[i]nstead of stepping out of the vehicle as requested, Chapman got into the driver’s seat of his truck and jumped a curb onto the sidewalk toward a security guard before driving away, said Jim Fulton, spokesman for the city prosecutor’s office,” the paper reports.

His lawyer, Brook Hart, said this “was simply a man who wet his pants with orange juice inadvertently and was changing them, doing nothing wrong at all and believing he had sufficient privacy to do it.” He tried to drive away “to avoid negative publicity,” according to the paper.
