'Dog the Bounty Hunter' Star Beth Chapman in Medically Induced Coma, Family Says

Beth Chapman, the wife of Duane "Dog" Chapman, is currently in a medically induced coma.

The Chapman family broke the news in a statement to Hawaii News Now, saying she has been admitted into the ICU at Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu.

In their statement, the Chapmans “humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth," and offer their "sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth’s battle with cancer.”

Chapman's husband took to Twitter on Saturday night to echo a similar statement, asking for prayers for his wife, who has been battling cancer.

Fans soon poured into the replies to offer their love and support for the Dog the Bounty Hunter and Dog and Beth: On the Hunt stars during this trying time.

It is unclear exactly what crisis led to Chapman's sudden hospitalization, as family has not shared any exact details as of press time.

Other family members have remained silent on social media, with one exception being Bonnie Chapman, Duane and Chapman's 20-year-old daughter. She posted a seemingly happy photo of her parents together on Saturday night, though it may have been an old image.

She used two red heart emojis as its caption, and nothing more. Fans soon filed into those replies, as well, to offer kind words as they wait for more updates on the 51-year-old reality TV star's condition.

Chapman has already filmed episodes of Dog's Most Wanted, an upcoming WGN America reality series in the same vein as Dog the Bounty Hunter. A premiere date for the series has not been set, as of press time.
