GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Duane “Dog” Chapman may get the last word in a spat with a Colorado sheriff over an arrest involving pepper spray.

The “Dog the Bounty Hunter” episode broadcast Wednesday on A&E omits the dispute he had with Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey after a fugitive’s arrest.

Hilkey told the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel he didn’t watch the show.

The sheriff criticized Chapman last summer, saying he excessively pepper-sprayed a fugitive and then took him into the sheriff’s office without first decontaminating the man.

Surveillance videos in the Grand Junction sheriff’s lobby show people having coughing fits, backing up Hilkey’s claim.

Though the show made no mention of the squabble, Chapman’s wife, Beth Chapman, tweeted Thursday: “So does anyone think the Mesa sheriff was right?”
