A former cast member of Dog the Bounty Hunter is suing the show’s stars as well as A&E for low pay.
Justin Bihag, 31, claims in court papers that he has only been paid $28,000 despite many promises from Duane “Dog” Chapman and network executives that he would receive a lucrative contract. Bihag alleges that Chapman and the executives took advantage of him, using things like a 2007 accident that resulted in him losing his right leg for their plot lines.
“Once the Chapmans were informed of the accident, they proceeded to do interviews with the media to use the accident as a promotional tool for the show,” court documents read, according to The New York Daily News.
Bihag claims that since leaving the show, he became a drug addict who suffered from depression and lost custody of his child. He is now trying to make a living as a rapper.
