Lyssa Chapman is an American businesswoman, a former serf, and a former bounty hunter. She is famous for her role in the A&E television series ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’.

Lyssa Chapman’s Biography
Lyssa Rae Chapman was born on June 10, 1987, in Denver, Colorado, USA, as a daughter of mother Lyssa Rae Brittan and father Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman. Her mother is the third wife of her father and she is the ninth of the twelve children her father had.
She was raised by her father until she was ten years old and after the failure of her parent’s marriage, she moved to her mother in a small town in Alaska.
Lyssa Chapman had her daughter Abbie Mae Chapman when she was fifteen years old, and to everyone’s surprise, she refused to report her offender but thanked him for giving her a daughter.
Dog the Bounty Hunter
She took part in her father’s television show “Dog the Bounty Hunter”, an American reality TV series that was broadcast by A&E at the time. The series was discontinued in 2012 after eight seasons and 246 episodes. It was about their experiences as bounty hunters and how they managed to track down and capture wanted fugitives or prisoners who violated their parole.
Lyssa Chapman became a licensed bounty hunter at the age of 19. She also worked with her father in the family’s own bail company, Da Kine Bonds, which was reunited six years later.
What Does Lyssa Chapman Do Now?
Currently, she no longer works with her father and does not appear in her father’s exhibition. They say that she is a businesswoman now, and that’s all we know about her career and business at the moment.
At the age of 23, Lyssa Chapman became pregnant with her second child when she was with the child’s father; they loved each other very much. On August 7, 2009, they had their daughter Madalynn Grace Galanti and we found out that he also had a daughter from his previous relationship.
Lyssa Chapman’s Relationship With Brahman Galanti
In February 2009, Lyssa and Brahman ‘Bo’ Galanti made the Covenant of Life in Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii, and they were happy, or at least we thought they were. Unfortunately, there were reports that she was physically and mentally abused during her marriage and that she sometimes ran out of the house in the middle of the night to her father’s house because she was afraid of Galanti.
In 2011, however, Lyssa got tired of the abuse and decided to file for divorce and both went separate ways. She is currently divorced and lives with her two daughters Abbie Mae Chapman and Madalynn Grace Galanti. Ideally, this is not a good sight or a thing to see, especially for growing children, but we believe that their separation was the best way to go.
Lyssa Chapman was arrested on March 15, 2011, for assaulting a police officer and damaging criminal property.
In 2013 she wrote a book entitled “Walking on Eggshells”, her autobiography: The Story of Lyssa Chapman. In this book, she explained and revealed things that happened in her life.
