It’s a tough job, and you could get shot at, but somebody’s gotta do it: Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, was fired at yesterday while trying to apprehend a bail jumper.


The Associated Press reports that police in Colorado Springs say Dog and a bail bondsmen were attempting to take Hoang Nguyen into custody after his bail was revoked on an attempted murder charge, when the man fired at them with a handgun and escaped on his motorcycle.


Dog and the bondsmen were aremed only with paintball guns, not much of a defense in the face of real bullets, but apparently no one was hurt.


The man was taken into custody this morning by police and will appear in court today.
