Daniel Duvall, 35, says that the women of Lipstick Bounty Hunters tracked him down at an Arby's in Huntington Beach because he failed to pay $4,000 he owed a bail bonds company.

Duvall told the station that the women hit him with a stun gun, pepper-sprayed him, and shot him with rubber bullets.

"I put my hands up...inching toward the door...and then all of a sudden she shoots me and then I got tased and I was just out that door. I couldn't breathe. I had pepper spray in my eye, dye, I was tased," he said.

Duvall said the attack blinded one of his eyes, broke his nose and bruised his entire body, reports CBS Los Angeles.

The victim's attorney, Dan Gilleon, said, "They can go and say, 'Well, we thought he was dangerous. He was a criminal.' Whatever. It doesn't matter. Assault and battery and you blind somebody. You pay a lot of money for it."

The women, who videotaped the incident and posted it online, claim they had the right to use force in apprehending Duvall.

"We're allowed to use enough force to affect an arrest," said Teresa Golt, the owner of Lipstick Bounty Hunters.

The women said they're not hiring an attorney and will beat the accusations.
