DOG the Bounty Hunter’s wife had to be put in a medically-induced coma after she started fighting against doctors’ help, according to reports.
Beth Chapman, 51, was “agitated” and in a lot of pain when she arrived at a Hawaii hospital on Friday amid her throat cancer battle, TMZ reports.

She is understood to have started pulling out the tubes doctors were using to give her fluids and medications.
Sources claim she was placed in a medically-induced coma on Saturday after medics found it “difficult to treat her”.
She had been transported to Queen’s Medical Centre in Hawaii from her Honolulu home after having difficulty breathing and passing out momentarily.
But she was “not reacting well” when she arrived at the ER and had to be given oxygen.

TMZ claims medics first put her under a mild sedation before going ahead with a full medically-induced coma.
She is believed to have been in a coma for at least two full days.
Her husband Duane Chapman – aka Dog the Bounty Hunter – took to Twitter over the weekend and asked his fans: “Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you”.
The family spokesman Mona Wood-Sword said the family are still hoping Beth will recover.
“Duane and the family feel she’s such a fighter, she could get better,” Wood-Sword said. “The family still has hope.”
Beth was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer in November 2017.
Despite having successful surgery, doctors told her the cancer had returned and she started chemotherapy in December last year.
In April, she was rushed to hospital in Hawaii with “serious breathing issues”.
Duane, 66, previously told Fox News his family’s faith and beliefs were what was keeping them all going at such a difficult time.
He said: “Faith is probably the No. 1 thing in our lives, no matter what we’re faced with…
“Through this cancer episode, we had to drum up as much faith as we could. And the Bible talks about having faith as small as a mustard seed.
“And that’s not much… And I thank God that we had at least that much faith to get her through that.”
