'Dog The Bounty Hunter' star Duane Chapman gets Mexico reprieve
UPI News Service, 10/21/2006
A Mexican court has granted popular television bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman a stay in his criminal case and the extradition proceedings against him.
The Honolulu Star-Bulletin reported Saturday that on Oct. 17, an appeals court in Guadalajara granted an order to stop the criminal case against Chapman, his son Leland and associate Timothy Chapman pending further evidence and testimony.
The Mexican government had requested U.S. marshals to arrest Chapman and his posse in Hawaii last month on charges that their June 2003 capture of convicted rapist and Max Factor heir Andrew Luster violated Mexican laws against bounty hunting.
