    Bounty Hunter Offers Services to Find "Missing" LawmakersSam Cohen FOX40 News 6:04 p.m. PST, February 25, 2011 SACRAMENTO A Sacramento bounty hunter is offering his services to track down Democratic Lawmakers from Wisconsin. The lawmakers have reportedly fled to neighboring Illinois to delay a vote on a bill that would cut public employee benefits and take away collective bargaining rights. The bill was suggested by Governor Scott Walker to help the state of Wisconsin balance their budget. But it has split the legislature along party lines, and Democrats fled the state last week to boycott the bill. Bounty hunter Leonard...

    Just after admitting he was "astonished" hearing about Jesse James' alleged affair on Sandra Bullock with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, Duane Chapman from "Dog the Bounty Hunter" has told the world about his own infidelity. According to TMZ, "Dog" was on a Minnesota radio station when he admitted to being a cheater -- and then went on to say that his wife had no knowledge of it. (Note to Chapman: she's certainly going to know about it now!) There's no word yet on if, like Jesse, the "other woman" involved in this case is a tattoo model decorated with controversial statements.

    PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico (AP) -- A Mexican judge has ruled to close the criminal case against bounty hunter and TV reality star Duane "Dog" Chapman, but state prosecutors have appealed the decision, officials said Thursday. In the July 27 ruling, Judge Jose Alberto Montes ruled the statute of limitations had expired on the case, said Guillermo Diaz, assistant prosecutor for the state of Jalisco, where Puerto Vallarta is located. Chapman was arrested in September by U.S. authorities on a Mexican warrant stemming from his 2003 capture of fugitive convicted rapist and Max Factor cosmetics heir Andrew Luster in Puerto Vallarta....

    What does the man have to be apologetic about? Capturing a convicted serial rapist who should never have been in Mexico in the first place? Maybe for not saying "may I" first? Perhaps he should apologize for taking all those millions of Luster pesos out of the hands of that impoverished and corrupt little country? Dog was in constant contact with US and Mexican authorities, and had even paid a Mexican cop to come along on the arrest. The cop, (being Mexican and all,) hightailed it when the tortias hit the fan!

    MSNBC's Rita Cosby is reporting that Duane Dog Chapman, star of the A&E reality series "Dog the Bounty Hunter," and two members of his bounty hunting team (including his son) were arrested by U.S. officials today for extradition to Mexico.

The charges date back to Chapman's apprehension of Max Factor heir Andrew Luster in Puerto Villarta,...

Duane Chapman and his Hawaii-based "posse" of family members, who star in A&E's most popular series, were after an elusive bail-skipper who had played for the Daly City Renegades semipro football team. What happened next is the subject of an unusual civil rights lawsuit filed Wednesday at the U.S. District Court in San Francisco. Chapman's son tried to grab and restrain one...

    The owner of a Hayward pizza parlor will serve four months of home detention and pay a five-thousand-dollar fine, after pleading guilty to illegally transferring money to a bounty hunter out to kill Osama bin Laden. Forty-one-year-old Noor Alocozy also was sentenced to three years of probation today in federal court. Authorities say Alocozy transferred $1 million dollars out of the country between 2002 and 2003. They say some of that money reached Jonathan "Jack" Idema, a jailed American mercenary who claimed he was on a counterterrorism mission with the U-S government. Authorities say Idema -- a former Green Beret...

Swede Ulf Hjertstrom, who was held for several weeks with Mr Wood in Baghdad, was released by his kidnappers on May 30. Mr Hjertstrom has since claimed he shared information with US and Iraqi troops about Mr Wood which led to the release of the 63-year-old Australian engineers two weeks ago, after 47 days in captivity. Now, he wants to find those responsible. "I have now put some people to work to find these...

    Afghan forces arrested three Americans, including a purported former Green Beret, after raiding a jail they were allegedly running in the Afghan capital and finding prisoners hanging from their feet, officials said Thursday. The U.S. military, facing a widening inquiry into prisoner abuse, quickly distanced itself from the three, who had been posing as American agents before being detained Monday. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Thursday "the U.S. government does not employ or sponsor these men." Afghan officials also dismissed claims by the apparent ringleader, Jonathan K. Idema, that he was a "special adviser" to their security forces, saying...

    MONTPELLIER, France - A Frenchman allegedly traumatized by the Madrid bombings tried to run down a pedestrian he mistook for Osama Bin Laden. The 35-year-old, identified as Pierre, was the "victim of a hallucination" while driving through Montpellier in southern France, his lawyer said. Pierre was sentenced Tuesday by a court to a three-month suspended prison term and fined $615. The man he tried to run over was unharmed, but the car was wrecked. "If it was [Osama], we would have won $5 million," Mendel said.

Duane "Dog" Chapman &#8211; his nickname is God spelled backward &#8211; and two others took Luster down at a taco stand on Wednesday, witnesses said. 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 ......
