(Newser) – Hopefully Dog the Bounty Hunter doesn't end up having to track down his own stepdaughter, who was arrested Sunday for allegedly robbing a Honolulu bank. Nicole Gillespie, 35, allegedly entered the bank earlier this month, gave the teller a demand note, and ultimately fled the bank, Hawaii News Now reports. Gillespie is the daughter of one of Dog's ex-wives, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser notes. Dog (real name Duane Chapman) and current wife Beth Chapman released a statement this week noting, "It's always difficult and disheartening when someone you knew as a child grows up and chooses a life of crime. ... We have not seen 'Nickie' in over 10 years. Watching her on Crimestoppers left us all shocked and heart broken."
