Tim Chapman Bio – The Truth About His Ex-Wife, Children & Net Worth

For anyone who is familiar with the reality television series Dog the Bounty Hunter which aired on A&E TV, Tim Chapman would need no introduction. A retired American bounty hunter and former reality TV star, he gained recognition for being one of the major characters in the aforementioned series in which he helps Duane Lee “Dog” Chapman Sr., popularly known as Dog the Bounty Hunter or just Dog, in tracking and capturing wanted fugitives. Tim Chapman was part of all the seasons of the show except the sixth season.

Who Is Tim Chapman and How Old is He?

Born Timothy Charles Chapman on May 13, 1965, in Ventura, California, USA, the bounty hunter, who grew up in Ventura, is best known as Youngblood. His parents, Ronald Chapman and Diane Wimberly, a Colorado bondswoman, separated when he was two years and six months old. Consequently, he and his brother Russell J. Chapman had to move over to their paternal grandparents’ home where they lived for two years.

During his teen years, Tim Chapman shuttled between living with his mother and living with his maternal grandparents, who were owners and operators of Denver-based ABC Bail Bonds. Because bail bondsmen usually work closely together with bounty hunters, Tim was exposed to the latter at a young age and according to him, he made his first arrest as a civilian when he was 14 years old.

He later started working at his mother’s bail bond business and during his time there, he met Duane “Dog” Chapman. Having become close friends with Dog, Tim eventually joined him, Beth Smith (Dog’s then-girlfriend), and Leland (Dog’s son) in Hawaii where they had established a bail bonds company known as Da Kine Bail Bonds.

In 1976, Dog Chapman was sentenced to prison for murder and speaking in a 2007 interview, he revealed that he was inspired to become a bounty hunter after he succeeded in tackling an inmate who was on the verge of being shot for trying to escape. Being Dog’s “blood-brother” as Dog describes Tim, even though they are not related, Tim Chapman joined him in the bounty hunting business and together, they became popular after they successfully captured Andrew Luster in Mexico in 2003. This paved a way for Dog and his team to have their own series, Dog the Bounty Hunter, which began airing on A&E on September 16, 2013.
