‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Star to Face Extradition

Feb 16, 2007  •  Post A Comment

A Mexican court is expected to reject attempts by Duane Chapman, star of A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” to avoid being extradited and charged with deprivation of liberty.

A&E said the ruling will not affect the show for now.

The network expects to post a videotaped statement from the Chapman family on AETV.com today and will update its special “Dog: The Family Speaks” before it airs Saturday at 9 p.m. ET.

The charges stem from Mr. Chapman’s capture of Max Factor cosmetics heir Andrew Luster, who fled to Mexico after being accused of rape. Mr. Luster was convicted upon his return to the U.S.
