Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Leland ended up in the hospital following the family’s first manhunt since the death of Beth Chapman on June 26.

Leland Chapman — son of bounty hunter and reality TV star Duane “Dog” Chapman and his first wife, La Fonda Sue Darnall — was left with a severe knee injury after he and his dad took down a suspect in Colorado on Tuesday.

The Chapmans were on their first case since the death of the bounty hunter’s fifth wife, Beth, at age 51.

Leland, 42, and Dog, 66, were chasing a domestic violence suspect when the younger man suffered a torn ligament in his knee while tackling the fugitive, according to AL.com.

The father of three has now been instructed to rest for up to six weeks as he prepares to undergo surgery in Athens, Ala.

The fugitive is now in custody.
