Beth Chapman

Arrest Warrant Issued

7/25/2013 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Beth Chapman is learning the hard way ... you don't call another chick a whore and a slut in Colorado ... because she's now facing imminent arrest.

Beth and hubby Dog the Bounty Hunter were fishing at a lake earlier this month when a car roared by ... which didn't sit well with the famous couple and their kids.  Beth allegedly began berating the teenage passenger, whom she called a tramp, a whore and a slut, among other choice words.

The situation escalated ... and Beth called 911, claiming one of the people in the party she confronted was ominously carrying a gun with his hand on the grip.

By the time cops arrived, Beth and her brood had split.  But the teen filed a criminal harassment complaint.  Under Colorado law, if someone taunts, challenges or uses "coarse language" against someone, it's a crime.  It appears slut and whore qualify.

So cops issued a summons for Beth to appear in court on the misdemeanor harassment charge.  Law enforcement tells TMZ ... they called her on her cell several times to come down to the station to pick up the summons, but she blew them off.

So police issued an arrest warrant, which means Dog could make some money by cuffing his wife and taking her to the station -- kidding.

Cops tell us ... Beth's lawyer has already contacted them, and arranged for Beth to turn herself in and accept the summons.

BTW ... Colorado cops tell us ... the guy with the gun didn't violate the law, and in Colorado you can walk into a grocery story with a gun in holster and it's perfectly legal.

Beth Chapman is an amazingly strong willed and strong minded person. She did what she felt she had to do to protect her family, and I applaud her strength and courage. I have had the privilege of meeting both Dog and Beth in person, and they are very kind and gentle people to talk with. Beth seems to be very much a 'give what she gets' person, I believe Beth is the victim here....not the teenager who claims Beth "yelled" at her. Now that I am seeing that guns were involved, I am even more proud of Beth Chapman for being so courageous in the face of danger.

Hahahaha! Good for her! they think they are above and beyond the law, Can call anyone anything they want? Apparently they found out that YES.. Colorado Laws DO apply to THEM AS WELL..With all the work they do or did here, THEY DID NOT KNOW YOU CAN LEGALLY CARRY HERE IN COLORADO??? Are they truly that stupid? By the time cops arrived, Beth and her brood had split, they KNEW she was in the wrong.
I wish she would have lunged at him or anyone else that were all together, he woulda shot her....Not a darn thing they can do about it if the sheriff, DA agreed that it was a legit shot.

Don't worry folks CMT is moving her show to Saturdays just like AE did before they canceled it. If you tune in you can catch her verbally abusing men and women that they and others have bonded out of jail for missing their court dates and not checking in! If you call 911 you usually stick arpund to give a statement to the police.Her adult daughter or husband could have taken the younger children somewhere else. She's also worked bonds long enough to know you return calls from the police and you pick up your summons. Instead Alice Chapman guiltily trotted off to avoid speaking to police.

They'll most likely settle out of court. They'll give the punk a couple of grand and she'll go away. I'm sure she saw dollar signs from the start.

Honestly I think its time they had the cops called on them to take them off their high horses. They are always running around getting in people faces saying their going to charge people with stuff like they are cops. But they are not cops. So maybe this will open their eyes.
