National TV show films on location in Grundy and Coffee County

Last week, Cumberland Bail Bonding Company’s agent, Anthony Jones, and company owner, Andy Baggenstoss, teamed up with Duane “Dog” Chapman and his team of bounty hunters to bring fugitives to justice in Grundy County while filming for the second season of their reality show, “Dog & Beth: On The Hunt.”

Film crews followed the bounty hunting team to various areas of Grundy and Coffee County as they successfully apprehended two fugitives, Daniel Morrison, charged with DUI and reckless endangerment, and Reuben White, charged with driving on a revoked license (sixth offense) and possession of Schedule VI. Then, they persuaded a third, Brian Meeks, wanted on violation of probation, to turn himself in to the authorities. The team also searched for Sarah Davidson, charged with aggravated assault and vandalism, and Travis King, charged with driving on a suspended license (second offense), however these fugitives still remain at large in Grundy County. All of the fugitives were also charged with Failure to Appear, which led to a capias being issued for their arrest.

“Dog, Beth, Leland and the rest of the team were great to work with. The days they spent in Tennessee were productive and eventful,” Baggenstoss said. The Morrison apprehension was particularly exciting. As Dog and Beth hit the front of the house, Baggenstoss and Jones hit the back. Morrison fled. While chasing the fugitive, Baggenstoss and one of the crewmembers were injured by a single strand of old barbed wire during the pursuit. In the end, Morrison was apprehended.

The crew spent a total of four days hunting, but took a break in between to attend the Country Music Awards in Nashville. Sources say the episode is expected to air on CMT sometime in late August or early September.

The following excerpt from CMT’s website explains the premise of the show:

“Dog and Beth leave Hawaii to support and advise fellow bondsmen and bounty hunters across the country as they hunt down some of America’s most dangerous criminals. Traveling to cities from coast to coast, the Chapman’s work with local bondsmen offices and offer their years of experience to every aspect of the business — from the process of writing bonds to the implementation of tactical tracking and hi-tech device training.”

Any information or leads on fugitives in Grundy or Coffee Counties can be reported 24 hours a day to Cumberland Bail Bonding at 1-800-468-1161.
