COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado Springs bail bondsman Bobby Brown is suing the creators of the A&E television show "Dog the Bounty Hunter" for more than $75,000 in damages.

The lawsuit filed on Wednesday against A&E, Hybrid Films and D&D Television says Brown appeared in more than 40 shows of "Dog the Bounty Hunter." It says he was paid $6,000 for his contributions but wasn't compensated for each Colorado episode.

KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs reports (http://bit.ly/qooBTN) Brown feels the network and the show's creators used his likeness for their own gain without properly compensating him and made false promises that led him to focus on the show instead of his bail bonds business.

KRDO reported that A&E hadn't returned its phone calls seeking comment Friday.
