Judge releases 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' star Duane Chapman on bail

UPI News Service, 09/16/2006 

Grinning reality TV star Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman, was released on bail in Hawaii late Friday to the cheers of adoring fans.

Chapman told fans that he was absolutely sure he would be vindicated on charges of illegal detention that go back three years when he and his posse went into Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and captured fugitive convicted rapist Andrew Luster, The Honolulu Star Bulletin reported Saturday.

Bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico.

Chapman was released from the federal lockup in Honolulu on bail under house arrest and was ordered to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.

He faces extradition proceedings that will determine if he should be sent to Mexico to face charges. He could get six months to four years in prison, if convicted.

Chapman's son, Leland, and fellow bounty-hunter Tim Chapman also were released under similar conditions.
