Hawaii Honors TV Bounty Hunter, Wife

Honolulu (AP) -- The State House of Representatives in Hawaii has passed a resolution honoring bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman and his wife Beth.

It praises them for getting crooks off the streets. As a sponsor puts it, "they continue to spread justice and aloha around the world."

The Chapmans star in the TV reality series "Dog The Bounty Hunter" on the A&E channel.

Chapman and two of his colleagues are also wanted in Mexico on charges of making an illegal arrest there. Hawaiian lawmakers want Mexico to drop the case.

In accepting the honor Tuesday, Chapman called himself "the poster child for rehabilitation in America."

The ex-felon often prays with the fugitives he tracks down.
