Early Life:

Timothy Charles ‘Youngblood’ Chapman was born on the 13th of May 1965 in Ventura, California. Tim’s parents Ronald Chapman and Diane Wimberly got a divorce when Tim was just two years old. This resulted in Tim and his brother Russell spending their childhood with Ronald’s parents rather than their own parents. This temporary arrangement was discarded two years later when Tim went to live with his father and Russel stayed with his mother. Born into a family of bondsmen, Tim was fascinated by the lifestyle of his family. He continued the family business and arrested his first fugitive at the age of 15. On the academic side, Tim graduated from the local high school and forfeited college for a career as a bounty hunter.
