    Duane "Dog" Chapman is upset a $300,000 federal bond remains in place even though a Mexican judge has dismissed charges against him. The TV bounty hunter posted the bond and was freed after being arrested last September as he fought extradition to Mexico. He had been charged under Mexican law with "deprivation of liberty" for his 2003 capture of a fugitive convicted rapist in Mexico. Mexican Judge Jose Alberto Montes dismissed the charges last month, ruling the statute of limitations had expired.

"That doesn't look like a sale to me," attorney Barry Novack, who won a $19 million verdict for one of the women, told the Los Angeles Times for its Friday's editions.

    LOS ANGELES &#8211; A bounty hunter who calls himself "Dog" captured convicted rapist and cosmetics heir Andrew Luster, but it has cost him time in a Mexican jail and the disdain of his colleagues.

Luster, 39, was deported to California Thursday, but Chapman and four others remained in Mexican custody, facing potential charges ranging from entering Mexico illegally to kidnapping. Fellow bail enforcement agents, as they prefer to be identified, were disgusted. "This Chapman ......
