Just a few short weeks after the passing of his beloved stepmother and fellow bounty hunter, Beth Chapman, the son of Duane “Dog” Chapman has been hospitalized following an injury sustained while bounty hunting a known fugitive.
According to AL.com, the 42-year-old reality television star and his father, Dog, were chasing down a suspect and throughout the course of the manhunt, there was a struggle while trying to subdue the fugitive.
Chapman and Dog were hunting fugitive Edward Morales in Adams County, Colorado when it all happened and Leland Chapman somehow was injured and transported to the hospital where he will undergo surgery to repair his ACL.
This was both Dog and Leland’s first fugitive hunt for their reality show since Beth’s passing on June 26th, 2019. A memorial service in her honor is set for July 13th in another part of Colorado.
Love you all and thank you very much for the support you have been giving for Beth. We have tentatively scheduled July 13 in Denver to tuck her in, tell her goodnight, for she sleepeth. More details will follow… time, place, ect.

We are praying for Leland’s speedy recovery and hopefully, he will be able to attend the memorial in just a few days’ time.
