Falsely identified "fugitive" sues 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' star, A&E
UPI News Service, 08/17/2006
Duane Chapman, best known for his TV show "Dog the Bounty Hunter," is the center of a lawsuit in California over his family's actions.
Chapman was named in a suit filed Wednesday by Daly City, Calif., native Simaile "Cisco" Lutu -- who claims that Chapman's bounty hunting family and area police both incorrectly targeted him as a wanted fugitive and harassed him for three days, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Chapman and his family were hunting a bail-jumper in May 2005, and Chapman's son grabbed Lutu believing he was the target, forcing a filmed confrontation.
