Brian became a Bounty Hunter in 1983. Over all the years that he has actively chased down Bail Skips he has caught just over 3,000 men and women fugitives.
As a licensed Fugitive Recovery Agent, Uptgraft has chased and captured all degrees of fugitives. From felony attempted murders, assault with a deadly weapon, domestic and child abuse along with rapist bail skips, he has even chased some for misdemeanor theft, DUI, and possession of paraphernalia, but he has tracked them all. A great percentage of his long and colorful career he has used cunning to capture more often than brute strength - though he has kicked in his share of doors.
Through the years he has also worked with hundreds of local and nationwide Law Enforcement Agencies throughout the US including the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force, the US Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, Homeland Security, ATF and even had a case working with the Secret Service. Many of those experiences, officers and agents’ stories will be talked about in detail on these shows.
