Television's "Dog the Bounty Hunter" is suing Governor Chris Christie. Duane Chapman, a former bail bondsman who gained fame chasing fugitives on A&E's" program named for him, announced the lawsuit yesterday. The wrongful death lawsuit was filed against Christie's administration concerning the killing of a man from south Jersey. Authorities say 28-year-old Christian Rogers of Millville was shot and killed by 30-year-old Jules Black of Vineland in April.
Chapman's lawsuit says the only reason the murder was possible was bail reform championed by Christie. It goes on to say Christie violated the rights of the victim, as well as those of "all African Americans" in the state. The governor's office did not issue a comment.
