Dog The Bounty Hunter Rushed To Hospital With 'Heart Emergency'
Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, was rushed into hospital at the weekend following a 'heart emergency'.
The 66-year-old TV star was taken to hospital in Colorado over the weekend and may now be facing surgery.
He is said to have requested help after suffering pains in his chest.
Although not yet confirmed, it is believed Chapman may have had a heart attack, and doctors are currently carrying out tests to determine what has happened.
A spokesperson told the Mirror: "I can confirm Dog is under doctor's care and is resting comfortably. Thank you for all of your well wishes - keep 'em coming."
It's been a rough year for Chapman with his beloved wife Beth passing away in June following a long battle with cancer.
Fifty-one-year-old Beth had been placed into a medically-induced coma before her death, after years of living with the disease.
Sharing the heart-breaking news on Twitter, Chapman wrote: "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."

Speaking more recently about her death, the devastated TV personality admitted that he was struggling to eat due to grief.
"Every day is a challenge," he said. "But, you know, one to 10, I'm six. I've lost a lot of weight but I started eating last night at a soul food restaurant we went to, and I'm trying to get back on track... I really like to dream now."
As well as dealing with the loss of his wife, Chapman also revealed that his shop had been broken into and thieves had made off with some of Beth's possessions.
He said the thieves had taken 'thousands of dollars' worth of items as well as 'priceless' belongings.
A spokesperson told Fox News: "Not only did the thieves take thousands of dollars of clothing, these criminals took priceless personal belongings of our beloved Beth, including tributes to her kindly left by our amazing fans.
"To whoever did this, you better watch out. Dog is coming for you."
While Chapman took to social media to offer up a 'large cash reward' for anyone with any information about crime.
