Duane Can Arrest People

In that interview, they had talked about many things and enjoyed that interview well. 

Conan was first very scared with Duane's look, and he even said to Duane that he felt frightened. 

But it was a compliment for Duane. The very first thing Conan asked was Duane is not a cop, but still, he has that audacity to arrest the people, and the interview was curious to know-how. 

For that, he replied that anybody has the right to arrest the people who are doing wrong, but for that, they have to be Bounty hunters. 

Conan had even asked if he could arrest anyone he liked, but for that, Duane said that he had to get training from him and had to be certified first, and then only he could do that.

Duane revealed that he doesn't carry a gun but expects a gun. He does carry other armaments. 

Instead of carrying guns, he carries beanbag guns and lethal guns. For him, mace is the best weapon. 

He carries the fire extinguisher that contains mace in it. He opened up that he had even changed his overlooks to catch the wrong people, and for that, he just made his hairstyle different and wore a suit. 

He had never disguised himself as a girl to do that, and he has his wife with him. They both work together in a team.

He takes his wife with him every time he catches a criminal. The coolest thing he said was that he carries an arrest warrant inside his boots. 

Not many people know that he is a Bounty hunter, so he normally gets inside the other's house.
