TRENTON — “Dog the Bounty Hunter” is taking Gov. Chris Christie to court.
Duane Chapman, famous for chasing fugitives on reality television shows, announced Monday he has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Christie’s administration over the killing of a south Jersey man.
Christian Rodgers, a 28-year-old Millville resident, was shot to death while walking in Vineland on April 9, authorities said. Jules Black, a 30-year-old Vineland resident, was charged with his murder.
Chapman — a former bail bondsman who rose to fame by starring in the A&E show “Dog the Bounty Hunter” — said the murder was possible because Black was free thanks to a bail reform overhaul that Christie championed in New Jersey.
