Dog Goes Down!


U.S. officials have arrested TV reality star Duane "Dog" Chapman and two family members for extradition to Mexico. Chapman's wife Beth told MSNBC's Rita Cosby that heavily armed U.S. marshals arrived at the family's house today and took away Chapman, his brother, Tim, and son, Leland. Cosby said she was told that Mexican government officials wanted the three men sent back there in relation to a three-year-old case. In 2003, the Chapmans went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to retrieve Max Factor heir Andrew Luster, who was wanted in the U.S. on rape charges. Luster is now in jail, serving a 124-year term, but at the time, the Chapmans were also jailed by Mexican authorities for a brief time three years ago. Bounty hunting is considered a crime in Mexico. At the time, the Chapmans were charged by Mexican authorities with illegally capturing Luster. The three returned to the United States after posting bail of their own.
