You hope you never need it but we all know there's a business out that there that thrives off people messing up and going to jail.

Bail bondsmen help get a lot of people out from behind bars but it doesn't stop there.

Pit Bull is a bail bondsman and a bounty hunter. He's a guy who loves his job and isn't afraid to play tough.

"It's not a 9 to 5 job," said Doug Graue "Pit Bull". "Never know what's going to happen."Graue says when someone is in jail looking to get out he can be their best friend.

"When they run, I'm their worst enemy," he said.

He left 20 years of police work behind for life as a bail bondsman.

"You're always a little nervous because you don't know what's going to happen," Graue said.

He is based out of Hayti in Pemiscot county and covers 30 counties.

His mission on the day we caught up with him was to find a man he bailed out of jail on 10 percent of $25,000 bond not long ago."The subject we bonded out hasn't met up with his obligations. He's moving from house to house every few weeks," Graue said.

Graue says the bail bondsman has a big responsibility.
