    That's it in a nutshell. I don't think that Wisconsin is the only state like that either. I'll stick to felony arrests and even then, it will only be a last resort.

    Interesting. Although citizen's arrest is ambiguously explained, perhaps intentionally so, there is case law to defend such a course of action. Nevertheless, it seems prudent to reserve an actual arrest for felony crimes in order to avoid defending yourself in a court of law. After all, you might be found not guilty, but the State isn't going to pay your legal bills. Not to mention the expense incurred fighting in civil court.

    That favors Nathan's position based on what I read. Special Investigator, what say you?
