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.

What happened to Dog and our INNOCENT Border Agents is a result of President George Bush-Fox's allegience to Mexico and not America and her citizens. Dog Chapman did everyone a favor by putting that piece of "Human Excrement" aka Andrew Luster behind bars.

I wish Dog and his pack could go after all the ILLEGAL LAWBREAKERS here and send them back to mexico where they belong. It's a damned shame that these people get away with this. And I think we should declare our border a DMZ and anyone crossing it gets shot on sight. That should end our problems quickly! Just my extreme right wing opinions again.....

I THINK IT'S TIME FOR THE USA TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND HELP THE CHAPMAN'S WITH THIS ISSUE... ALL THOSE OTHER BOUNTY HUNTERS THAT ARE PUSHING FOR HIM TO BE EXTRADITED ARE JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE HE DOES THIS JOB WITHOUT A GUN AND HAS THE LORD ON HIS SIDE...REMEMBER HE CAUGHT A MILLIONAIRE WHO WAS A SEXUAL RAPIST WHO THOUGHT HE WAS ABOVE THE LAW... IT'S TIME TO STAND-UP AND HELP RESOLVE THIS ISSUE AND LET THE CHAPMAN'S GO BACK TO DOING THEIR JOB BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE HAS DONE...BETH IS A WONDERFUL STRONG WOMAN AND SHE WILL FIND AWAY TO PUT THIS ISSUE TO BED ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!

Dog is a loser just like all bailbonds men and bounty hunters. He looks like a retired wrestler on tweak. Also his wife needs to get a reduction before her back goes out. The show is funny though. But he needs to face the music on this one. Being a bounty hunter he should have known about the laws in Mexico. Since he had a show he thought he could get away with it because of his celebrity. He was wrong. I hope a couple of vans and SUVs show of at his house, better yet at his business and bear mace him just like he does.

ButchCivic we don't care what a career criminal, as you probably are, think about Dog. Of course you wouldn't like bounty hunter's/bail bondsmen. They're always after scum like you. Maybe the rapist he captured could come live with your mother/daughter/sister or wife since you're SO sympathetic. The big picture is HE TOOK A SERIAL RAPIST/WOULD BE MURDERER OFF THE STREETS - dumbass

If this guy's name is DOG, what is his wife's name? I"ll guess...is it THE PIT BULL, THE ROTTIE (no, that's Camilla's pet name from Prince Charles), THE BULLDOG (no, that's Rosie O's pet name for herself), THE MONGREL (no, that belongs to the Trumpster), THE HOUND (no, that name belongs to one or both of the Olsen twins)?. ....oh I give up. Let's just call her the woman with bodacious hooters (the size of watermelons!).

I can only suspect that the posters here who can think of nothing more to comment upon then Beth's chest size are likely "special needs" posters with a VERY low I.Q. Sad thing is they think they're the first person to comment on it, and that we'll all be howling with laughter. Well you're not the first, and you're not clever or funny either. Please fu*k off and die and leave the discussion to the adults.

It is sad that people can be so small minded and make such rude comments about some one they do not even know. I realize that everyone is entitled to their own opinions..but come on. The Man, his son, and his brother put away a man that was a terrible disease on society. Luster will never again walk the streets and prey on our mothers, daughters, or granddaughters. All thanks to Dog. To Butchcivic, yes he probably did know the laws in Mexico on Bounty Hunting, but did not care. Because he knew he needed to get this guy off the streets. Did you know that he had people posted in differrent countries JUST to look for this creep(Luster)?? They put man hours, and their own money into the capture of him, because they knew he would run like the average dirtbag rapist who is wanted usually does. Sure there was a reward, but he never collected it, BECAUSE he broke a law on the way the capture went down.( Ending up in the arrest of Dog, Leland, and Tim.) So why don't you think it was right that they went, and hunted this guy down, any way they had to? From the way it sounds, you obviously have had a bad experience with a bailbondsmen?? Not all of them are losers. I agree there are ones out there that are heard to be harsh. But like the Dog, maybe they just want to get all the criminals off the streets. Just be thankful that these days there are legal systems, that you are innocent until proven guilty, fair trials, and housing for criminals, instead of going to the gallows, or a firing squad that would be glad to waste a criminals ass just to get rid of the drain on society. If we didn't have law enforcement/Bondsmen/Bondswomen, the streets would be overrun with the worst. People should get down on their knees and thank God to have the Chapmans on OUR side. I just cannot believe all the negativity out there. And yes, Dog looks different, so...it just makes him more interesting. Is there anything else wrong with Dog, that Butch would like to clear his mind on? Everyone is different, and has their own tastes. And F.Y.I. Butch, the FBI DID show up in Vans/SUV's whatever and arrest him. And there were more than a couple of them from what we all heard. Dog stood up like a MAN and took his consequences LIKE A MAN, for his actions. All in the name of the United States. It just blows my mind that there are people like this out there who feel that this issue is of no great importance. This is something I feel very strongly about. We all are cynical at some point in our lives. But to stand here and let this happen is nothing less than an atroscity. Addind insult to injury are people like Mr. Civic, and Mr. Kerr. And i'm sure they are not the only two. Maybe we should put them all together-great minds think alike..HA! AMEN!!!!!!

It sucks that he went the wrong way to catch that rapist piece of crap. I hope he doesn't go free because his capture will be considered illegal. Correct me if I'm wrong, but itsn't the rapist the heir of a cosmetics company?
