The gate outside the home of Duane Chapman has a gold-plated sheriff badge with the signature golden locks and black sunglasses included.
There is no missing the residence of Dog the Bounty Hunter, star of the A&E reality show.
?I think it?s a little over the top but I think he thinks I'm pretty cool,? said Washington resident Jared Fausett.
?Over the top is the polite way of putting it, but there are other words I might use to describe it,? added Kahala resident Bob Schmieg.
The gate is literally "over the top" according to the city?s Department of Planning and Permitting, which says the gate is 8 feet high, 2 feet higher than allowed by city ordinance.
The city also said the gate was built without a permit nearly a year ago.
?The sign at Mr. Chapman's property is like a big billboard its promoting him its promoting his persona, his business, his television show,? said Nuuanu resident Holly Huber.
Huber is not as concerned with the size of the gate, as she with the advertising on it, which the city says is also illegal.
?If you look at the ordinances they are very lengthy. They are very detailed and that?s so that they can protect our beautiful island from this visual blight,? said Huber.
The rather large portrait of the dog has actually turned into somewhat of a tourist attraction.
