MONTROSE �” He came, he dropped off a million-dollar fugitive, and he left.
The Montrose County Sheriff’s Office reports that Duane Chapman, TV’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” delivered Grand Junction fugitive Eric Ludwick, 36, to a local deputy Thursday night.
“We had a celebrity in our house last night. I don’t know where Dog grabbed him at, but he must have been in our area,” MCSO spokeswoman Bobbie McCoid said Thursday.
Ludwick was wanted on a Mesa County Sheriff’s warrant alleging felony menacing, criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and reckless driving, according to the Mesa County Combined Courts.
The bond is $1 million, because Ludwick kept missing court, said Mesa County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Heather Benjamin.
