Dog the Bounty Hunter is known for risking his life on a regular basis to catch high-profile bad guys. But there are some criminals that even Dog can’t catch.
Dog told FOX411 that Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, the Mexican drug lord who escaped a high security prison this month, is someone that he probably wouldn’t be able to capture.
“He probably would be out of my league,” Dog said. “In order to take him down, number one, you better have a fully automatic weapon. With my weapon, you have to get really close to him — and you couldn’t get that close to him because he probably has five or six guys with him at all times.”
He continued, “[Also], there would have to be two or three of you to take him down because he is going to shoot it out next time. Last time, I heard they surrounded him and gave him a chance to come out.”
Dog thinks that El Chapo is hiding out in Mexico; bounty hunting is illegal there.
Fox News reported that:
Tthe reality star, 62, learned that the hard way when he was arrested by Mexican authorities and nearly faced a jail sentence of his own in 2003 after capturing a convicted American rapist in Puerto Vallarta.
“I have learned to stay in my own country,” he says, looking back. “You can’t even talk about arresting a guying Mexico.”
Although Dog has captured thousands of bail-hoppers, he thinks that many of them don’t belong in prison. He said, “Prison is for the violent [criminals] — not for the non-violent or someone who is maybe not educated enough and won’t commit the crime again. If it is non-violent, it means that people made mistakes. We are spending so much money on them and we have no room for the killers!”
Dog thinks that rehab is a better option for drug addicts. He told reporters, “I have arrested so many drug addicts that have come to me said, ‘Dog, I don’t want to do it. It is something inside me.’ Now what if his parents were addicts and it is in his DNA? Well it is. I have arrested third generation drug addicts. The guy that gave dope to a little girl, keep him there. But [the non-violent drug users], you gotta get them out. We don’t need to be spending $360 a day. It costs more to keep a man in jail than it does to put that same man through a cheap college.”
