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." (Read more Dog the Bounty Hunter stories.)
