Dog the Bounty Hunter's 'right hand man' David Robinson has dropped dead in a shocking turn of events for the TV star and his crew.

Robinson, 50, was in the middle of a video call on Zoom when he collapsed.

His wife, Brooke Robinson, rushed to his side as emergency services were called and CPR was performed.

Paramedics were unable to revive him.

"David was very healthy and was on a work call in our dining room at home when he collapsed," Brooke said as she confirmed the news on social media.

"Life-saving manoeuvres were attempted and paramedics were called. David died in my arms."

She added: "We ask again for time and space to grieve for the husband, father, brother and friend that was lost."

Robinson appeared alongside infamous bail bondsman Duane 'Dog' Chapman in Dog's Most Wanted.

The series ran for one season in 2019, and is a spin-off of the hit show of fan-favourite Dog the Bounty Hunter.

That show also saw Chapman and his team chase fugitives all over America.

Dog paid tribute to the man that hunted down crooks beside him in a statement to TMZ.

"I'm shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of David Robinson, my right-hand man of many years. Until we meet again, brother," he said.

An official cause of death has not been revealed.

Robinson's shock death is just the latest blow for the Dog and his bounty hunting team.

Chapman was banned from entering the United Kingdom in 2022 because of his involvement in a murder case from years ago.

He was set to appear on Celebrity Big Brother back in the day, but the UK Border Agency told him that wasn’t going to happen because of his association in the 1976 murder of Jerry Oliver in Texas.

The Dog was sitting in a car outside a house when one of his mates went into the property to buy marijuna.

Oliver was in the house at the time and was killed after a struggle that left him shot dead.

Despite sitting in the car and not involved in the killing, Chapman was convicted of first-degree murder and served one and a half years out of a five-year sentence in prison.

Chapman also made headlines for all the wrong reasons during the manhunt for Brian Laundrie in late 2021.
