U.S. reality Tv star Duane 'dog' Chapman has been hit with a lawsuit over unpaid show royalties.

Former castmember Justin Bihag claims he was not compensated properly for his appearances on Dog the Bounty Hunter between 2004 and 2006 in a lawsuit filed in New York's Manhattan federal court on Thursday (25Sep14).

Bihag alleges he was only paid $28,000 (£17,500) and is seeking damages, restitution and punitive damages, according to the New York Post.
