When A Citizen, Not A Police Officer, Will Make An Arrest
There are certain situations where a citizen will make an arrest because the police are not present to do so. These are considered citizen’s arrests.
Citizen’s arrests are mostly for felonies. They can occur for misdemeanors if the misdemeanor involved a breach of peace.
In order to carry out a citizen’s arrest, the crime must have already occurred and the citizen making the arrest must have at least reasonable suspicion of who the perpetrator is. The crime need not have occurred in the citizen’s presence.
Anyone making a citizen’s arrest must be very cautious of how they carry it out. Excessive force can get them into trouble themselves. If it turns out the arrest was unconstitutional or the citizen had insufficient information, incorrect knowledge, or any type of miss-information that led him to doing something outside of the boundaries of the law, then that citizen can find themselves in a lot of trouble as well.
