    Chapman, son Leland Chapman and associate Timothy Chapman were taken into custody and did not resist arrest, said Mark Hanohano, U.S. Marshal for the district of Hawaii. "It went down without incident," Hanohano said.
    Mona K. Wood, a publicist for the star of the popular cable series "Dog The Bounty Hunter," said Chapman would be vindicated. "He arrests the bad guys — and he is definitely not one of them," she said.
    The charges stem from Chapman's capture of Max Factor heir Andrew Luster on June 18, 2003, in Puerto Villarta, Mexico, said Marshals spokeswoman Nikki Credic in Washington.
    Chapman's capture of Luster, who had fled the country after being convicted of raping three women, catapulted the 53-year-old bounty hunter to fame and led to the reality series on A&E.
    The three are being held in Honolulu. Bail has not been set. They will face an extradition hearing to Mexico under terms of treaties between the U.S. and Mexico, Credic said.
    Chapman's son Leland, 29, and Timothy Chapman, 41, no relation, assist Chapman in exploits chronicled for the TV show around the Hawaiian Islands. The show focuses on Chapman's family as much as the bounty hunting, which generally involves tracking down bail jumpers, often creating emotional scenes with repentant captives.
    Charges have been pending against the three since local police in Mexico arrested them shortly after they roped in Luster. They posted bail but never returned to Puerto Villarta for their court hearing on July 15, 2003, Credic said.
    Mexican authorities demanded that the Chapmans transfer Luster to Mexican police. Their refusal to do so led to their initial arrest.
    A U.S. warrant for their arrest was signed by a federal judge in Honolulu on Wednesday.

    I did not hear about the gunpoint thing.

    Unreal. Dog does a good thing to better the world and Mexico, of course, makes a stink.

    I hope the US does the right thing and tell Mexico to itself and let Dog go back to helping clean up the streets.

    Although, I would not mind them locking his wife away for a long time.

    Anyone see the "Dog: The family speaks" special last night.

    I am even more furious than I was last week. I cannot believe (actually, I guess I can) our government would turn over someone like Dog to the vultures.

    If anyone deserves some sort of pardon, it is DOG, and not brothers in law of the Clintons...

    Fact 1: Dog has been arrested something like 10-20 times in his life. This guy is no saint.

    Fact 2: He broke the law. You break the law, you suffer the consequences. For all the griping that goes on about how celebrities get off when the lay person shouldn't, I'm shocked that this guy is getting a free pass. The law is written in a certain way - he broke it, these are the rules. Sorry if you disagree.

    Fact 1: Dog did his time and has shown over the years he is a reformed criminal. His duty to the island of Hawaii cannot be measured.

    Fact 2: It is not the law of the US that has gotten him in trouble ... it is the law of Mexico that does not allow bounty hunting. Essentially, you are telling criminals "Hey, run down here and we will give you safe haven ... unless your stupid enough to get captured by our police."

    Dog captured a man who was wanted on EIGHTY SIX counts of rape. Let that sink in ... EIGHTY SIX counts of rape. Instead of getting some sort of gratitude for pulling such a vile human being from the streets, Mexico treats him as if he was a criminal.

    If Afghanistan had rules against bounty hunting, but yet I pulled Osama Bin Laden from his hole, should I be arrested for apprehending a human being like that?

    WHO CARES how he was arrested, as long as the SOB is off the streets.

    Some states do not allow bounty hunters without police by their side. Say for instance Andrew Luster was living on your street, in your neighborhood in Arlington. Dog as to arrest the man without police by his side ... would you be happy to have that man out of your neighborhood and defend the guy? Or would you call the guy an idiot for not abiding by the law in getting the guy off your block?

    Actually, he's been arrested because he refused to turn Luster in to Mexican authorities and THEN left the country when he was supposed to attend a hearing.

    When you go to another country, you are subject to their laws, especially when your home country has a treaty with them allowing for extradition if you break their laws.

    According to the lawyers and family, Dog was lead to believe by the Mexican authorities that he could leave and not come back for a hearing as long as he stayed out of the country for 3 years. The Mexican government, they were told, would never come after them.

    As has been hinted, it looks like this whole thing could be a bait by the Mexican government in some sort of trade off.

    I am sorry, but the Mexican government is about as corrupt as it comes. I really don't care whether or not he broke their laws while they harbored an FBIs most wanted fugitive.
