Bounty Hunter Accused of Terroristic Threatening Appears in Court

By Minna Sugimoto

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Bounty hunter Duane Dog Chapman's sidekick, Timothy Chapman, made his first court appearance in a terroristic threatening case on Oahu Wednesday.

The reality TV star arrived at District Court without an entourage, or his trademark ponytail.

Police say Ala Moana Center security guards responded to a report of a nude man inside a parked truck Thursday night. Chapman's attorney says his client was changing clothes after spilling juice on himself.

"You really can't see anything without being a Peeping Tom yourself and looking into the front window of the truck," Brook Hart, defense attorney, said. "The Dodge Ram 1500 has a very high console. In the back or second cab of that truck, there is a three-window arrangement, each of which was heavily tinted."

The 42-year-old is accused of nearly hitting a guard with his truck, as he jumped a curb and drove off.

"He's a strong and centered person, but he's had a lot to deal with the past several months," Hart said. "And this incident makes things even more challenging for him."

Chapman, who's free after posting $11,000 bail, had no comment as he left the courthouse.

A preliminary hearing is set for Friday.
