Who Let the Dog In?

Dog the Bounty Hunter appears in NM House of Representatives to support a bill establishing minimum requirements for bounty huntersThe House of Representatives got a celebrity visit this morning: Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter.

No, the Dog wasn't there to serve any outstanding warrants.

He was there to show support for Rep. Jim Smith's House Bill 313, which would authorize a licensed bail bondsmen to retain the services of a fugitive recovery agent -- a bounty hunter - to investigate, locate, arrest, and hold a fugitive after notifying local law enforcement.

The bill would hold the bail bondsman responsible for the qualifications and behavior of the fugitive recovery agents they hire and establishes requirements for bounty hunters.

Dog didn't speak to the House. The bill still is in the House Business & Industry Committee.
