Dog's Son Tucker Jailed for Parole Violations

2/24/2008 5:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dog the Bounty Hunter's son, Tucker -- who sold the infamous tape to the National Enquirer -- was taken to the Oahu Correction Facility on Friday for violating multiple terms of his parole. Karma's a bitch!

Here's what went down: Our sources say two weeks after the tape surfaced, Dog learned Tucker was using drugs and threatened to expose him to his parole officer. Then the tape dropped -- interesting timing.

After that, we're told, a parole officer made Tucker check in to a rehab facility, which, we hear, Tucker walked away from.

Sources tell us Tucker's parole officer executed a surprise home inspection this week, and didn't like what he found. The PO then brought Tucker in on Friday, revoked his parole and sent him to the slammer. Among his alleged violations -- associating with known felons, failing a drug test and walking away from a rehab facility.

Meanwhile, as TMZ first reported, "Dog the Bounty Hunter" is back on the air and will begin production this week.

UPDATE: Dog Chapman just released this statement to TMZ: "I am heartbroken that this has occurred, but I am relieved that my son in now in a place where he can no longer hurt himself. To my bruddahs in the system: please don't hurt my son as he knows not what he does. I love my son and wish him the best."

I used to like to watch Dog's show until I realized what a phony Christian he is. The whole bunch of them will hold hands and pray before going out on a job, then during the bust every other word is a cuss word, and he seems to think he is some kind of role model for kids? He was convicted of being involved in a murder some 30 years ago and did time in prison, and got caught making racist rants on tape. Dog's wife Beth is supposed ot be a Christian also, but she seems to never have read the verses in the Bible where it talk about dressing modest. She looks like an old drag queen who is TRYING to dress like a tacky old whore. His "brother" was just caught notlong ago sitting in his truck with no pants on in public. They are like a bunch of cartoon characters come to life.

I really hope they change their minds about bringing the show back on.

I am happy that the show is coming back on. Is is entertaining. So what if Dog's family has problems, doesn't every family, his family troubles just happen to be in the news. I believe Dog has paid the price of his verbal no excuse for telephone word. But if so many want to punish him for the rest of his life, what chance does the same people have for their mistakes that they want to make amends for? I say--bring it back on---it is entertainment, that is what tv is and that is why all of you have something to say about it---everyone loves to be entertained, everyone loves to gossip.

Well this just goes to show that when you have kids and you get in trouble with the law, in and out of jail, and using drugs, your own kids will grow up and do the same things you did sometimes. He's doing everything his dad did, but minus being a racist. He loves blacks and the Dog is a racist.

As a parent it breaks my heart that Tucker's life is in such a whirlwind right now. No matter what he's done though, he is still Dog's son and it must hurt him greatly to read some of the things that are posted here. When someone is down you don't try and keep them down you should try and help them up, even if it is just words of encouragement.

Tucker, things happen for a reason, good and bad. You come from a strong family and I know you'll come out the other side of this turmoil a better person. God bless and stay strong.

Luv, Wings

dont throw stones when you yourself live in a glass house....Christians arent perfect by any means! Do you really think that if he talked to people in a calm sweet voice that it would reach as many people as he does?? God uses all sorts of people. Nobody can do someone elses job in life. he speaks their language in turn God uses him to reach out and help others

I am sick of Dog being trashed!!! I am SOOO happy that Dog and his crew are returning! Forget making fun of his haircut, his age, etc.! What he does is a great thing, and you idiots puting him down should read his book! This man turned his life around after so much adversiy and a very hard life, now hunting down criminals with a kind and compassionate heart! His controeversial conversation was private, as if noone else has ever used bad language they regret in the privacy of their own homes!....most people love to judge others but God is the only judge. Now I will put back on A&E, after boycotting it since they took off his show! YEEHA!, time to celebrate the return of a hero, WELCOME BACK DOG!!!!!!!

Tucker is getting back exactly what he deserves.He hurt a lot of people in his family.A person might not get back the good
or bad they do right away,but sooner or later the Karma will come back. I'am glad Dog"s show is coming back,one of my favorites.

How sad, but at least this tells us Tucker's motivation. Don't blame yourself Dog, you tried.

He's disgusting like his nasty father. These people are hideously unattractive. Get a hair cut "Dog". I'd say you sere uglier than a dog, but I love dogs too much for that and frankly, I don't know a single dog that you aren't uglier than. lol Wow I sound kind of mean, but I'm really nice. ha ha Just can't stand the sight of that wrinkled up sun-worshipping cig-smoking DOG!

That dog is just a vile and disgusting human being. No wonder he screwed his kid up. He is the one who should be locked up.
