New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie just became the next target for Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman.
On Monday, Chapman announced a wrongful death lawsuit against Christie in relation to the alleged April 2017 murder of a Millville, New Jersey man.
Christian Rodgers, 26, was found dead in the backyard of a property in Millville on April 9 after getting shot walking down the street that afternoon, according to pressofatlanticcity.com.
A man by the name of Jules Black was arrested for the murder and unlawful possession of a weapon, in connection with the death.
Chapman’s lawsuit against Gov. Christie alleges that Black was able to carry out the murder thanks to the governor’s “Bail Reform” initiative. Dog the Bounty Hunter filed the lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey alleging wrongful death.

“I wanted to help support the Rodgers family and to send a message to Gov. Chris Christie that law enforcement professionals like myself from across the country think he should be ashamed of himself for ignoring our advice and passing the dangerous, fake reform that I believe led to the tragic murder of Christian Rodgers,” Chapman said in a release. “Christie should be ashamed of himself. The Governor needs to know that the eyes of every American who loves their family and wants to preserve law and order are on him right now.”
