    Default Television bounty hunter Dog Chapman and co-stars set free on bail in Hawaii

    HONOLULU – TV reality star Duane “Dog” Chapman and two co-stars accused of illegal detention and conspiracy in the bounty hunters' capture of a cosmetics company heir in Mexico posted bail and were released Friday.
    Chapman was released on $300,000 bail after spending the night in a federal detention center and his co-stars on the popular A&E show “Dog The Bounty Hunter” were freed on $100,000 bail each.

    Chapman, his son, Leland Chapman, and associate Timothy Chapman, no relation, were arrested Thursday on charges stemming from the capture of Max Factor heir Andrew Luster on June 18, 2003, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, officials said.
    Chapman's capture of Luster, who had fled the country during his trial on charges he raped three women, catapulted the 53-year-old bounty hunter to fame and led to the reality series on A&E. Luster is now serving a 124-year prison term.

    Bounty hunting is considered a crime in Mexico, and charges have been pending against the three since local police in Mexico arrested them shortly after they roped in Luster. They posted bail but never returned for their court hearing in July 2003, officials said.

    Chapman made the sign of the cross and mouthed “I love you” to his wife, who was sitting in the front row of the crowded courtroom.

    The men are now required to wear electronic monitoring devices until they return to court for extradition hearings to face trial in Mexico. The judge said they were not flight risks.

    Chapman and his tattooed crew were ordered to surrender their passports, to stay in Hawaii and not possess any firearms.

    Defense attorney Brook Hart, who successfully argued during the 1-hour, 10-minute hearing that his clients have no reason to be locked up, called the devices “overkill” but did not object to their use.

    “It's ironic that the bounty hunter would go around with a bracelet while arresting people. But so be it,” he said.

    Reporters and fans packed the courtroom, and several supporters held signs outside the federal courthouse saying, “Let go our hero” and “In Dog we Trust.” A&E TV crews were filming the events for a future episode of Chapman's show.

    “Our whole family likes Dog. He captures people who do wrong. Plus my older sister wants to marry Leland,” said 11-year-old Shannon McNamara, of Los Angeles, who was wearing a Bounty Hunter shirt.

    Chapman's son Leland, 29, and Timothy Chapman, 41, assist him in exploits chronicled for the TV show around the Hawaiian Islands. The show focuses on Chapman's family as much as the bounty hunting, which generally involves tracking down bail jumpers, often creating emotional scenes with repentant captives.

    A member of a biker gang as a young man, Chapman was convicted in 1977 of being an accessory to murder and sentenced to five years in prison.

    That article, unless I'm blind, doesn't really point out that the guy that Dog detained.....the Max Factor heir......was a SERIAL RAPIST.

    That's why Dog & his crew were hunting him in the first place.

    The article doesn't clearly say that the guy is a rapist but Ive seen reports of this on the news and the guy Dog was hunting was a SERIAL RAPIST.

    To quote Dennis Miller, "our world is so ass backwards you almost wish you were dyslexic". Dog hunted and caught a serial rapist and put him behind bars for 124 years. At the same time Dog gets put into jail because Mexico doesn't allow bounty hunting? Is that the story here? What should outweigh what? Rapist or hunter of the rapist?

    I understand that Mexico's laws state that Bounty Hunting is against the law but I tell you what. If I lived in a country that had strict laws prohibiting bounty hunting and a bounty hunter caught a rapist, I could care less about what was illegal or legal. He just took a dangerous offender off the streets and put him behind bars for his whole life.

    Oh yea what a criminal this bounty hunter is.

    Oh yea, that stupid article focuses more on Dog and what he has done and is doing in his life than the real issue. A RAPIST is in PRISON!!! That's a good thing where I live.

    The sad thing too is is that our government sent US Marshalls out to Dog's house to get him because Mexico asked them to. If we asked this of Mexico it would never happen.

    I am not much for prayer and all that, but I pray that Dog comes out of this with flying colors.

    Maybe the US needs to crack down on all the illegals that Mexico sends our way if this is how they treat our people. (yeah, that'll happen) This makes no sense whatsoever. I think they're just trying to cash in on Dog's fame and his ca$h.

    Dog da man.

    I know a lotta people who wanna marry Leland tho.

    The reason for all of this is money, pure and simple. Andrew Luster was a heir to the Max Factor fortune. Throw a lot of money at the right people and you can get whatever you want. It's revenge by Lusters family for Dog catching him.

    And a big SHAME ON YOU to the U. S. Marshalls who went along with this whole charade. They should all start questioning their loyalty to the U. S. after this ordeal.

    Looking forward to the show on Tuesday since they're gonna talk about all this. Be interesting to hear their side of it.

    One of my nephews said they took him down b/c he was arresting all of the iceheads and cutting back on their drug distribution activities. Not sure what that had to do with Mexico unless that's where the drug crap comes from.

    Didn't Mexico just extradite a big time dealer to the U.S. a few days ago???

    They probably worked a deal for a swap or somethin'...

    This is probably all just a setup to get higher ratings for his TV show.

    That was one of the Arellano-Felix brothers, huge drug cartel family from Tijuana.

    I can't see a swap here though. A huge drug smuggler whose organization has been responsible for countless, brutal murders for a bountry hunter who arrested a serial rapist? It doesn't add up.
