Dog to Federales: My Bad!

9/22/2006 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Duane Dog ChapmanDuane Dog Chapman- bounty hunter, reality star and all 'round bad ass- says he will apologize to Mexico in hopes of avoiding being sent back to face illegal detention charges.

The star of the A&E reality show "Dog the Bounty Hunter," his son Leland and Tim Chapman (say it with us- no relation) were arrested last week on charges stemming from their apprehension of convicted rapist Andrew Luster in Mexico. The Mexican government wants to have the three returned to the country to face charges which could carry a prison term of up to four years.

Brook Hart, Chapman's attorney, has said a resolution might include an apology to Mexico, a fine, forfeiture of the bail he posted in the country and a charitable contribution. While all three are currently out on bond, we can only hope that Mexico will know a good deal when they see it.

So you know Dog, if it were us, you'd have us at hello!

U Know Who    

Is this guy serious? The show has entertainment value I'll agree with that..otherwise this guy is PURE BULLSH*T

Dog was convicted of Accessory To First Degree Murder. Dog was in a Racist Motorcycle Gang. Now as with a HUGE portion of CONVICTED FELONS..he found God. Typical convict procedure drugs/crimes/murders.. get caught find god..Lamest sh*t ever...looks good for the parole board though.

The guy is so full of himself it makes me wanna puke, read the guys bio on his site. "His exterior is rugged and hansdsome" "His bulging Biceps"...bla bla bla.
Did this guy have a couple ribs removed so he can bend down like that?
You ask me the guy looks like sh*t, old weathered Haole Skin that got too much Hawaiian sun.

He's a Haole that plays Hawaiian always attempting to speak Pidgeon, that offends me. He catches "badguys" on a F***ING ISLAND FOR GODS SAKE! It aint that f***ing tough, he rarely comes to the mainland and when he does. He gets skunked most of the time.

If he is in fact the best bounty hunter to ever live CATCH OSAMA until STFU and don't drink the water in your Mexican Prison cell.

Why does TMZ say that Tim Chapman isn't related to Dog? on A&E show they say that they are brothers!

tim chapman and dog are related that is his brother, they say it plenty of times on A&E. His brother started the buisness and Dog joined him.

wow, blackmetal, for someone who thinks so badly of Dog, you sure have spent a lot of time thinking about him. If you don't like him, leave him alone and move on. Lots of people have made mistakes in life and it is admirable that Dog has taken his second chance and made something of himself. It's easy to poke holes in someone else, it's not so easy to shut up and do something worthwhile yourself. Stop hating and do something useful, blackmetal.

Totally CRAZY! Dog did all of us a favor!- A.L. was an INSANE criminal who obviously wasn't going to stop and was planning his "revenges." As for a "charitible contribution--- if thats what it takes to keep Dog free..... it is very sad that some people/counties are so poor that they have to take advange of those who are trying to make the world a better place!

U Know Who    

Mary Hon, once again you have no idea WHO I am or WHAT it is I do.

I However DO know WHO DOG is (or at least what he claims to be on his pretentious website bio), and I also know WHAT he has done. BEEN CONVICTED OF ACCESORY TO MURDER IN A RACIST MOTORCYCLE GANG - Yep great guy no doubt.

Dog is awesome. It's not like he murdered someone....he heard some gunshots & did not report. This man is a hero. GO DOG!

We, are not amused.    

Good point about catching bail jumpers on an island. I think that he figured he could just blow the Mexician authorities off. He didn't take into account that somebody south of the border probably saw his mug on TV and said "Ay yi yi, that amigo broke our laws and he must pay!" I think you can not go into other peoples countries, break their laws and then skeedadle across the US border and be all high profile and get away with it. Pay your debt, what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander Doggy ole boy!
PS his wife is a mountain of love, all big jiggly t*ts and belly-lap! Arf, Arf!

#2 What is up your ass toward this guy? He was in prison like, 20 years ago. Most felons 'find God' in order to look good for the parole board, you are right, but when they get out, they piss on it and go commit more crime. He hasn't had to put on an act for a parole board for a long time, he seems to have truly made a change. As for his looks, who the hell cares? He gets idiot people off of the streets, you don't need to look like Brad Pitt to do that. I wish their family all the best, the Mexicans are the ones that are full of sh**. If they spent as much energy getting all of their damn illegal immigrants out of here as they put into going after Dog and his family, I think our country would be a lot better off. Oh wait, their immigrants don't have money to pay them off with.

Dog and Tim are NOT blood brothers! Read his bio on his web site. They ARE NOT blood related. They call each other "brother" because of the closeness that they share!!!!
To black metal: Get a life.
