    Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, was arrested when he detained a fugitive in Mexico and returned him to America. Since bounty hunters are unique to the American bail system, he was charged with kidnapping (the power for bail agents to make arrests is granted in the Supreme Court case Taylor v. Taintor which doesn't apply to Mexico). To avoid this, Dog would have had to have the fugitive properly expedited by the respective governments back the the US.

    The Chapmans' main office is on the island of Oahu in Hawai'i. However, Duane Chapman is originally from Colorado and returns on occasion with his show to that state.
