Lyssa Chapman — one of Duane Chapman's children, who starred on his hit TV show "Dog the Bounty Hunter" — recently had drunk driving charges against her dropped following an arrest last year.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, "Baby Lyssa" was arrested in Hawaii on October 29, 2018 and later charged with Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of an Intoxicant and Disorderly Conduct.
Chapman was initially pulled over for a traffic violation. The docs state, "When the officer approached the driver’s side window, he immediately detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Defendant, red, glassy, bloodshot or watery eyes, and other indicia that through the officer’s training and experience would lead him/her to believe that Defendant was possibly impaired."
Court records show Chapman pled not guilty in November 2018 and a hearing was scheduled for January 2019. But that hearing was pushed back because Chapman had a "family emergency" — no doubt connected to Beth Chapman's health issues.
The hearing was rescheduled for March but then pushed back to April because one of the officers involved in the case was out sick.
Then in April, the prosecution dropped the case.
Lyssa is Duane Chapman's ninth child and her mother is his third wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain.
