Manhunt hasn’t nailed thug who allegedly threatened Trump, so ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’s’ stepping in

Duane Chapman, better known as “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” hopes to get the man who allegedly threatened President Donald Trump to surrender.

Chapman has reportedly joined the manhunt for Shawn Richard Christy, a Pennsylvania man who allegedly said he wanted to “put a bullet” in Trump’s head, according to the Mansfield News Journal.

Telling the news outlet that he had a “very hot lead” on Christy’s location, Chapman explained that he had been retained by a friend of the 26-year-old’s family.

Christy allegedly threatened Trump and John M. Morganelli, the district attorney of Northampton County, Pa., in a now-deleted Facebook post. He has been on the run since June 19 and has a federal warrant out for his arrest. Christy is also wanted in Pennsylvania for burglary, probation violation and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case, according to Fox News.

“Keep it up Morganelli, I promise I’ll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump,” he allegedly wrote in the post.

Chapman, who is scheduled to arrive in Mansfield, Ohio, on Sept. 27 where he was originally slated to host a town hall meeting on addiction, hopes to help with the search for Christy and that he can “bring him in peacefully.”

“I have delivered messages to him,” the reality TV star said. “My goal is not to shoot him but get him to surrender.”

The search for Christy, spanning several states and going as far north as Canada, includes the involvement of the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI, and the Secret Service. He allegedly abandoned a stolen truck in Ohio where he is also wanted.

While authorities warned that Christy should be considered armed and dangerous, and have offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to his capture, Chapman doesn’t believe he is armed, according to the Mansfield News Journal.
