Reality Bites: Justice Dogs Bounty Hunter

B. Thomas Cooper - Editor

Reality bites!

Just ask Duane “Dog” Chapman, television celebrity, and real life bounty hunter who is facing four years in a Mexican prison for deprivation of liberty. The charges stem from his June 2003 capture of convicted rapist Andrew Luster, the Max Factor heir, who was hiding out in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in an attempt to avoid incarceration. The sensational capture of Luster catapulted Chapman to stardom, leading to his very own television series.

Now it is Chapman who must stand trial after losing a court battle to prevent extradition to Mexico, where justice awaits the fifty-three years old reality star. Chapman’s attorneys claim their client is not likely to receive a fair trial in Mexico, a contention soundly rejected by a US federal judge hearing the case. Duane “Dog” Chapman and his son were arrested Sept. 14th, 2006 and were subsequently released on $300,000 bail.

Hasta la vista, “Dog” baby,
You’ve been collared.

This is a potential public relations disaster for the Mexican government. Dog rotting in a Mexican jail for nabbing a fugitive in Puerto Vallarta. Right or wrong, it won't play well abroad.
