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.

Dog,
You are THE Man! This is total BS and if our American government doesn't stand up to the Mexican government on this I am really going to question whether I want to be an American citizen.

This is just absolutely ridiculous. It is very sad that Dog and his boys took this sorry rapist off the streets and saved who knows how many women for the torture that he put several women in here in the US. Maybe they should have left his sorry excuse of a man there and then the Mexican government would have shot and killed his sorry butt.

But, then women here in the US would not be able to sleep at night so Dog was right on for getting this guy. Dog, Dwayne and Tim just need to be left alone and the Mexican governemnt should throw them a big fiesta and thank them for getting this monster off the streets and protecting their women and countless others.

Look people, I agree that DOG and his family of bounty hunters
are awesome people doing great work. However, he went into
another country and broke their f'd up laws, not to mention putting his
life in jeopardy...pretty damn irresponsible. Aren't there enough
fugitives in the U.S. for DOG to go after. Frankly, it was a really
stupid thing to do...his heart was in the right place though. I wish
him and his family nothing but love.

He's Boring now    

Whats Mexico going to do, come an get him? I dont think so...its only if the US honors the extradition request and than transports him to Mexico would anything occur. If our Congress stands idle after being inundated with petiions the last months to stop this nonsense, than this Country is headed for insanity.

This is such bullshit! Our government lets Mexico hide murders, drug dealers, and child molesters, and this guy is going to have to stand trial?

Tell me where I sign the petition to stop this crap.

Folks, remember he broke the law in that country. He is a lawman and he and his posse should be able to understand "the Law is the Law". I like the Dog, and believe he is a good man, person, father. But he must face the music. Stop bitching and start praying for him and his staff. Your &$*@f this and )^#*% that attitudes are not going to help this man. Try prayer. Pray for his loud mouth wife that belitttles criminals and makes fun of their addictions. The one that is only driven by money and material things. She is one of his weaknesses. Stop complaining and wake up and smell the coffee. You break the Law, you get caught, you pay. As American citizens turn that anger into something positive. BItching is not going to do it.

Since all you klones and sheep are drinking from the same Kool-Aid pitcher, I will speak up and say it first --- dibs on being his bail bond rep, so I can be filmed hunting him down in Hawaii on TV, then preaching to him like I am his best friend as I collect the money for his capture and return to Mexico, so he can face up to what he preaches,,, respect for the law.
