'Dog the Bounty Hunter' star willing to apologize to Mexico
UPI News Service, 09/23/2006
U.S. television bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman is willing to apologize to the Mexican government to help settle a criminal complaint against him.
The star of A&E's "Dog: The Bounty Hunter" is facing extradition from Hawaii to Mexico to face charges stemming from his failed attempt to bring U.S. fugitive Andrew Luster, convicted rapist and Max Factor heir, back to the United States.
Lawyer Brook Hart told the Honolulu Star-Bulletin that Chapman would be willing to issue an apology for violating Mexico's ban on bounty hunting, and would also pay a fine or make a charitable donation to settle the beef.
The newspaper said Chapman and his colorful family were feted Friday night at a Honolulu church and later described himself as "already half-healed."
