Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Yesterday, we lamented the lowlife, criminal scum that took a shot at Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, A&E reality-series star and erstwhile Westword profile/tribute subject. Now, NewsBlab.com has posted a YouTube clip featuring police traffic about the report, much of it erroneous (Dog was first thought to be packing a machine gun), and images from the scene. Best snapshot: The cops who responded to the call posing for a photo with the big Dog. As the video above confirms, everybody loves a happy ending.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
