Duane Chapman (a.k.a. Dog the Bounty Hunter) is being denied a visa to enter the UK based on a murder conviction more than 35 years ago.

Yes ... Dog was found responsible for someone's death in 1976.

A 1976 homicide case that ended with Chapman's conviction for murder bars him from setting foot in Britain, The UK's Guardian reports.

The 59-year-old was reportedly scheduled to appear there on Celebrity Big Brother until immigration officials booted his visa application.

Way back in 1976, Jerry Oliver of Pampa, Texas, was shot and killed by one of Duane/Dog Chapman's companions during a botched pot deal.

Although Chapman was reportedly waiting in a vehicle at the time, he was still found guilty and was sentenced to five years in prison.

He was released after 18 months. The reality star has expressed remorse many times. "I should not have been there, that's that."

Dog the Bounty Hunter was canceled after eight seasons on A&E. The network said in May it would no longer air the popular series.

Dog, whose family had recently been the target of death threats, claimed that negotiations between him and the network broke down.
