Dog The Bounty Hunter Reveals Wife Beth Tasered Suspect Week Before Death
Promoting his new show, Dog's Most Wanted, the reality star revealed Beth was still fighting the bad guys a week before her death - having even 'put a guy in jail'.
A tearful Dog - whose real name is Duane Chapman - explained how Beth had turned down chemotherapy after being told it would only give her an extra month to live.
The 66-year-old said Beth fought right until the end, shunning chemo so that she could be 'out there' with Dog and the family, saying: "The week before she went to heaven she put a guy in jail.
"Shot him - tasered him - didn't give him a chance."
Dog also said how Beth's final days will be shown in Dog's Most Wanted, which was something she had been adamant about.
He continued: "Credit where credit's due. She wanted to go ahead and do the show.
"She said 'This is my life and I'm going to show every bit of it'.

"She battled it for two years. Beat it once and then it came back very aggressive."
Dog added of the new show: "We want to be truthful and show different sides.
"We showed the real Chapman family. Each child takes it rough and each child is doing better. Allegedly time heals all wounds, but I don't know about this one."
Beth, who was 51, had been battling cancer for several years, and shortly before her death had to be placed in a medically-induced coma.
Dog confirmed that his wife had sadly passed away on 26 June, announcing in a tweet: "It's 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side."
Her public memorial was held at a church in Aurora, Colorado, which was filled with family, friends and fans celebrating her life in an emotional service live-streamed to the world.
At the service, Dog said he was 'completely unprepared' for his wife's death, breaking down while speaking to the crowd.
"I cannot believe she's gone, this is not possible," he said through sobs, referring to her as 'our lion tamer'.
"I want to wake up from a dream."
