Dog Chapman to Sheriff: I Was Covering YOUR Ass!

7/21/2011 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dog Chapman is lashing back at claims he doused a fugitive in a dangerous amount of pepper spray -- telling us, he followed standard safety procedure ... and nabbed a DANGEROUS criminal in the process.

Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey blasted the bounty hunter in a statement earlier today -- claiming Dog wantonly dumped the fugitive in his office, without properly decontaminating him first ... putting his staffers and several bystanders in danger.

But sources close to Dog tell TMZ, not only did Dog follow standard decontamination procedure -- hosing the guy down and changing his shirt before handing him over to cops -- he performed a CRUCIAL civil service ... and cops should be grateful.

We're told it took three whole days to track down the fugitive in question -- a dangerous ex-con -- who then allegedly tried to make one last run for it by jacking someone's car ... at which point Dog's team pepperballed him.

Sources close to Dog tell us, the bounty hunter was blindsided by the sheriff's comments -- because as far as he knew, the two parted on good terms.

Why all the hate for the Dog allos a sudden? There will always be people who don't like him and that's fine, but he does a job that NO ONE would want to do. Personally, I dont care what he does to get them as long as he is still within the boundaries of the law. This sounds like a petty personal complaint to me.

And with all the comments about his looks....seriously idiots? You are on a frickin gossip website posting comments about his teeth because YOU think he should have them fixed? What arrogant, egotistical and vain azzez you all are! Who gives a f@ck about his teeth when he is catching CRIMINALS??? What a pathetic place we as a society are becoming.

There's a problem here    

Seriously, how rich is this guy. He has his own tv show and you know he's pulling in bucks. Why can't he buy a set of dentures. He has like 12 teeth and half of those look rotten. His wife looks like she smells and who the **** cuts that mullet for him?

Sour grapes on the cops. It makes them look like they aren't doing their job which they probably aren't. Unless you call shaking people down with chicken **** tickets doing your job.

He makes our great state of Colorado look like a state full of trailer trash hillbilly's.
He hangs out in the Kmart parking lot picking his nose.
No Really! Next time I see him I'm taking a video of him doing it.
Trust me he's there all the time, go check it out broadway and belleview in englewood, can't miss his SUV with Dog plates!

at least Dog is trying to clean up Grand Junction (Known as Spun Junction or Grand Junktown) he was asked by local bondsmen, who had no luck capturing this guy, to come out and lend a hand so he did and all anyone can do is bitch and gripe about how he looks? Classy.
He did this community and service and this 'Sheriff' is pissed that Dog got the glory, that Dog did this in 3 days when he had months and an entire police force to work with. The 'Sheriff' is a sore looser!!! Thanks Dog, come back again to whoop some more ass soon!
