Tonight was a new two hour special called "Whale Wars: A Commander Rises." On this Dec. 13 episode, the show started out explaining that Paul Watson was missing and no longer on the show. He later showed back up but it made everyone wonder what was going on.
They explained that Paul was arrested in Germany. He was then let out in bail, but found out he would be arrested again right away to go to Japan. Instead of going back to jail, Paul skipped bail and is went on the run. He doesn't have his passport, ID, or even his bank card on him. There are two Interpol red alerts out to find him.
Now fans want to know if Paul Watson has been arrested yet and it doesn't appear that he served all of his time. On Nov. 20, Inside Costa Rica shared that they were still looking for him. They still have an active warrant out on him at this time.
Reports are that as of Oct. 28 Paul Watson was in the United States. He was at sea for 15 months running before his return. Costa Rica does want him to be extradited, but they will not confirm if this could happen or anything.
