Dog Chapman -- Botched Bar Raid Turns Bloody

7/9/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dog the Bounty Hunter was at the center of violent bar brawl Thursday night in Colorado -- and according to sources on the scene, Dog's security guard sent a guy to the hospital ... where he got 15 stitches.

TMZ spoke to the owner of La Montana Linda Restaurant in Breckenridge, Colorado -- and he tells us, Dog and his crew raided the place looking for the owner's father ... who allegedly jumped bail on breaking and entering charges.

According to the owner -- named Luke -- Dog barged in out of nowhere and confronted Luke's mom about the target ... and was extremely disrespectful.

Luke stepped in to calm things down -- but several customers had already taken offense at Dog's behavior and got in Dog's face ... at which point the bounty hunter's hired muscle jumped into action.

We're told one of the customers sprayed the security guard in the face with cleaning fluid -- and the big man lashed back with haymaker to the customer's face ... leaving a gash that required 15 stitches.

We're told the fight got so nuts -- it resembled a "saloon brawl" from a Wild West movie ... someone even threw a potted plant.

Cops showed up soon after -- but no arrests were made. According to law enforcement, the situation is still under investigation.

So far, no official word from Dog's people.

A bodyguard? We don't see any body guards on the tv program. Could the tv programs be staged? The hair style is outdated, his actions on the telly are rehersed. The entire family is dysfunctional. Time to ditch the dog.

Sounds like self defense. If jerks want someone else's monies so they stay out of jail then they should follow the rules. I hate to chase down my own money when I borrow it out, and it isn't thousands like bail bonds put out. I crack up at the comments. Easy to bash people when you are sitting in the basement of mommys house.

I don't agree with Dog's methods. What gives him and his bodyguard the right to barge into a privately-owned business and cause a commotion? Did the bar get paid for his appearance? Dog could've handled this so much better.

if people are stupid enough to start a fight w/dog and crew then they get what happens to them. both leland and sonny are trained fighters. it sounds like it was sonny who was the 'bodyguard' but he in fact is part of the crew, not a body guard and has been for years. if indeed it was sonny who got cleaning fluid thrown in his face, then that guy was lucky to walk away only needing 15 stiches. personally, i wouldn't just stand there and not defend myself if someone threw a poision in my face. and to the person who said sonny never goes to colorado, you either don*****ch the show or dont pay much attention. sonny has gone to colorado several times. i hope whoever got cleaner thrown at them is ok though.

This guy seriously needs a haircut and some moisturiser and his wife needs a diet and exercise program.
Is the reality show era almost over? I'm tired of seeing all forms of losers on tv and then being hailed as "stars" or "celebrities". Can we bring back real talent?

Dog's a foul hypocritical piece of sh*T who doesn't know when to STFU. Too bad he didn't get hurt, bad.

Too bad it wasn't lye he got sprayed in his face. The "target" wasn't even there and these d-bags go in and start harassing people. The bodyguard got what he deserved, I hope he goes to jail for being responsible for the whole fiasco. I smell lawsuit.

I look forward to reading about Dog's unfortunate death one day. I hope it's something deliciously ironic that he has the time to mentally process before dying.

The Dog has serious issues with disrespect especially to women - he walked into a public place and verbally assaulted a woman because her husband didn't go to court WAS SHE SUPPOSED TO TIE HIM UP AND DELIVER HIM TO THE COURTHOUSE? Have any of you ever tried to MAKE a man do anything? For all he knew the woman's husband could have run out on her too. Seriously, come on. He was totally wrong in doing it, on the other hand the man who decided it was a good idea to spray cleaner in someones face should have expected an a** beating.
