STAMFORD, CONN. -- A 52-year-old Stamford bounty hunter is facing unlawful restraint charges stemming from a May scuffle in Stamford with the girlfriend of a man being arrested for jumping bail, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Bill Kemp is out on $25,000 bond on charges of first-degree unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a child, the Stamford Advocate reported. He turned himself in Wednesday after learning about the arrest warrant, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Police told the Stamford Advocate that the girlfriend was restrained during the May 19 incident when Kemp, who is also a process server and elected city constable, and his team were trying to arrest a 35-year-old man at a Stamford house for skipping a court appearance on drug-related charges. While noting it is rare for a bounty hunter to be charged, police said all parties involved played a role in the fracas, the Stamford Advocate said.
