Duane “Dog” Chapman, of Dog the Bounty Hunter fame, was arrested along with his son Leland and Tim (“Youngblood”) by U.S. Marshalls today. They are facing extradition to Mexico to face charges of bounty hunting, which is illegal in Mexico and is considered kidnapping. In 2003, Dog and his two sons traveled to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to capture Max Factor cosmetics heir Andrew Luster, who was wanted in the U.S. on rape charges and is now serving a 124-year term.

The Dog and his family were jailed in Mexico shortly after their capture of Luster. They posted bail and never returned to Puerto Vallarta for their court hearing on July 15, 2003. Yes, ironically, the Dog and his family jumped bail in Mexico and returned to the United States. The three are to face a hearing later today in federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren. Good luck, Dog!
