How do you say Dog the Bounty Hunter in Spanish? Alfredo Arenas, the commander of the Baja California state police fugitive squad that tracks down U.S. fugitives in the area, is the subject of a potential U.S. reality series shepherded by agent-turned-producer Bill Thompson (E!’s Pretty Wild). 50-year-old Arenas, described as the Mexican version of Dog the Bounty Hunter, has a reputation of a tough guy. Here is how described his interrogation methods in a Los Angeles Times story this past summer: “Here, you don’t have the right to remain silent. You only have the right to tell me everything I ask you.” The project is expected to be pitched to the networks shortly.
