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.
