Mexican Court -- "Dog" Must Stand Trial

2/16/2007 4:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Duane "Dog" Chapman, star of A&E's "Dog the Bounty Hunter," may have to return to Mexico to stand trial for deprivation of liberty, reports the AP, after a Mexican court ruled today that he should be extradited. The charge stems from Chapman's capture of convicted serial rapist Andrew Luster in Puerto Vallarta in 2003.

"Our attorneys have not even been formally informed of the court's decision, as of yet," said Dog and wife Beth Chapman on AETV.com. "We are obviously deeply disappointed and fearful of what will happen, and are currently absorbing the news and discussing our options at this time." No further details were available.

In 2003, Mexican authorities had arrested Chapman and his associates for unlawful deprivation of liberty and released him on bail. Last September, Chapman was arrested by U.S. Marshals and again released on bail.

Jaime, you are a sissy without the cojones to say that to my face. I, on the other hand would be delighted to give you the opportunity.

Incidentally, I have told Chapman what I think of his rat ass and his rat family. He had nothing to say, being the cowardly runt that he is.

Just in case some of you never realized it, Chapman is a little bitty punk. He has the camera shoot him from angles to make him look larger for the show, but pay attention and you will be able to tell that he is not big and he has been known to run like hell when confronted on his own. On at least one occasion they don't want to show on the air, he ran like a little girl and left Leland to get his ass kicked when they encountered someone who wanted to fight.

TMZ is lame    

Mexico is a corrupt piece of crap country, totally out of control and the only reason we tolerate the immigration problem is 1) we need cheap labor 2) mexico has huge oil reserves. Outside of that boycott mexico. A country so corrupt, so backward that despite having one of the highest per capita billionaires its people are generally poverty stricken they have to come to a real Country most of them disrespect to send money back "home" the corrupt shithole the illegals are so loyal to.

If we turn over a generally law abidding US Citizen to these pieces of shit we look so weak and pathetic its no wonder so many countries take advantage of Our charitable good will towards outsiders. No wonder so many feel they can stab us in the back. Screw mexico, screw latin america and Via la dogg, double g.

Yes Dog broke Mexican laws. But which would the Mexican government rather have running loose? A serial rapist or a bounty hunter? Having a rapist running loose is a terifying thought let alone a man that went to the extreams he did to violate theses women. The fact that he taped his atacks shows the bold evilness of this peice of crap. Everyone that thinks Dog and his family should face the music should consider this. How would you feel if you got a phone call from the police saying that you or your daughter had been drugged and raped and to add to the news it was all on tape. You would be demanding justice. They done something that no one else could do or had the balls to do. They brought down a violent sidistick preditor. His capture made the world safer for everyone. Yeah he violated Mexican law but what about all those women he violated? Which crime is worse? What if his crimes led to him beginning to murder his victims? This convicted rapist didn't just walk right into the police station and face his music. He ran cause he is a peice of crap that shouldn't have been born. Andrew Luster is one of the worst criminals the world has ever saw and if the Chapman family hadn't captured him he could still be out there raping and getting away with it cause he had enough money to hide but fortunatly for us he was too stupid to stay hid. What I find so funny about crimes is how mosnsters get themselves caught, especaly when they have money. It isn't necisarily the forensic evidence that gets them caught. It is their boldness and can't ever touch me attitude they develope. What kind of moron comits a crime and has the gall to video tape it? I will tell you. It is the kind of person who is sick, has no reguard for the law and no conciouse. It realy shows you insight to the phsyciatic instability of these people. Taping your crimes and drugging shows premeditation and the concious choice you make to do wrong. It is just plain stupidness on the criminals end. If the US decides to extradite the Chapman family to Mexico it shows the world what they care more about politics then the crimes of such a monster. If Dog and his family went down there and comited unspeakable crimes sure ship his rear end down there. But for all you Dog hatters know this you and your family are a little safer since Andrew Luster is off the streets and you should thank him ever day for the job he does. I hope they fight this with everything they are. Hopefully JUSTICE will prevaile and the Chapman family gets the last BARK!!!! GO Dog!!!! you made the right choice. I can worry about my 8 year old daughter a little less tonight. You have my support and hopefuly u will go on cleaning the streets of trash!!!!! Best of luck and my prayers are with that family!!!!!!!

These people do not deserve this and I hope someone steps in to stop it before it goes all the way.

As for Joe Kerr and all you tough ex-prison punks...you make me sick. We law abiding citizens have no respect for your little prison culture don't rat on your brother bullshit and it's obvious Joe Kerr is obsessed and jealous of the Dog and his family. If you think he is a jerk, turn the channel!!

Judging by the numbers, more people feel like I do and thank god for that. I really pray that this injustice is made right and that people like Joe Kerr and the prison honor boys get what is coming to them.

Jaime and any other scumbag who wants to play keyboard commando, just bring your scumbag ass to Lake Isabella, Callifornia. Anyone in town can direct you to the top of the hill and my house, or just look for the bright light on the hilltop. Black belt in any martial art isn't enough to help you here, so you might want to bring some help along with your kneepads. We can send your hero a video of what happens to you and what will happen to him when he has to surrender.

I don't hide behind a computer and now you have easy directions to where I live. Do you have what it takes? Chapman doesn't and he knows it. Put up or shut up.

YMMV    

Joe Kerr... you crack me up. What does his height have to do with the problem you have with Dog? Oh, and let us know if someone actually bothers to show up at your house.

I am glad Dog and the others took Luster off the streets. Hopefully all of this is just some kind of "show" between the goverments and Dog will not have to do prison time in Mexico.

Okay, just to shut the haters up. How many people here know women that were raped/sexually assulted? I have met 5 so far in my lifetime (28 years). If you or someone you know was hurt in this way, you know the damage that it does to you. A friend of mine won't leave the house without a knife because of it. 1 in 3 women will be raped or sexually abused in her lifetime.

God bless Dog and his family!

All I hear is 2 sides. One side thinks Dog should go free and the other side says hey, you broke a law, so you should pay.

The problem I have is the wide spread corruption in Mexico. Thousands of crimes go unsolved, and the police are so corrupt, they will take pay offs. Who is to say Luster didnt pay these cops off?

When they found Luster in Puerto vallerta, he had MORE GHB! as if 86 rapes were not enough!

i know Dog broke a law, but im disgusted that Mexico, of all laws they do not enforce, decide to enforce this one.
