Duane "Dog' Chapman

TV reality star Duane "Dog" Chapman and two family members were arrested in Hawaii for extradition to Mexico.Chapman's wife told MSNBC's Rita Cosby that heavily armed U.S. marshals arrived at the family's house today and took away Chapman, his brother, Tim, and son, Leland."I was getting the children ready for school and the U.S. marshals burst in our door and they just came right in and took him," said Beth Chapman on MSNBC." He was shocked and he was amazed that the marshal's service that came to get him didn't even treat him as kind as he treats his own prisoners."A representative from the Marshal's office had a different version of what happened in Hawaii. "There were 7 deputy marshals who went to Chapman's home," said Jay Beber, from the U.S. marshal's office in Hawaii. "We knocked on the door to announce that we were U.S. marshals. ... Mr. Chapman was compliant and very respectful." The Chapmans were in custody and expected to remain in custody for three days until a bond hearing is held. Cosby said she was told that Mexican government officials wanted the three men sent back there in relation to a three-year-old case.In 2003, the Chapmans went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to retrieve Max Factor heir Andrew Luster, who was wanted in the U.S. on rape charges.
Bounty hunting is considered a crime in Mexico. At that time, Mexican prosecutors maintained that Luster's capture violated their sovereignty. The Chapmans each could face up to 8 years in prison if they are returned to Mexico and convicted on kidnapping charges.Luster is now in jail, serving a 124-year term, but at the time, the Chapmans were also jailed by Mexican authorities for a brief time three years ago.The three returned to the United States after posting bail of their own.This is a travesty of Justice!Bring the Dog and his Family back home now !
