Executive summary: Dog, the Bounty Hunter

Hawaiian skip tracer, known for his reality TV series on A&E. In June 2003, Chapman caught convicted serial rapist (and Max Factor heir) Andrew Luster in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Unfortunately, he did so without the permission or knowledge of Mexican authorities. Chapman was arrested and charged with felony kidnapping, afterwards returning to the United States. Ironically, the bounty hunter skipped bail and did not return to Mexico for trial as he had promised. On 14th September 2006, he was re-arrested in Hawaii with his son Leland Chapman and one other associate, and held for extradition back to Mexico. Charges were reportedly dropped in 2007 due to a Mexican statute of limitations having expired, though whether this is actually the case is unconfirmed.
