What is the proper procedure for holding a subject under the citizen’s arrest?
I am not talking about any MMA technique such as “Arm Bar, or Choke Hold…etc”
For example, let’s just say I witnessed a felony activity in the progress, such as a distruction of property or robbery ..etc. And I would like to arrest/detain the subject till the Police arrive. Am I allowed to put a hand cup on the subject? or is that breaking the Law? Also, what would happen to me legally, if I accidently break the subject’s arm or leg while trying to restrain the subject?
