Fear the mullet! 'Dog' on prowl for bail-jumpers

NEED TO KNOW
  • Duane 'Dog' Chapman is back on TV with new show
  • The bounty hunter weighs in on reduced sentence for Max Factor heir

He’s instantly recognizable with his signature mullet, sunglasses and unique fashion style, but Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman really got noticed 10 years ago after he tracked down then-fugitive and Max Factor heir Andrew Luster. Just last week, Chapman found himself facing Luster once again.  

Luster, who was convicted and sentenced to 124 years for raping three women, had his sentence reduced to 50 years. Now, Luster could get out of prison in 15 years.

Back in 2003, Luster was on the lam and Chapman tracked him all the way to Mexico. Chapman was on Luster's trail for 160 days. When Chapman finally caught Luster, his team found themselves sitting in the same jail as the fugitive.

Chapman and the crew were eventually released by Mexican authorities, and Luster was convicted on 86 counts of rape and drug charges.

Now, Chapman is on to a new chapter in his life. He and his wife, Beth, are back at it again, this time on CMT. They have a new show called, “Dog & Beth: on the Hunt.”

HLN's Mike Galanos had the chance to talk with Chapman about the infamous fugitive rapist he brought to justice and the new show chronicling his exploits.
