    Note, though, that if you’re wrong you’ll probably be liable for false imprisonment, and that you don’t have the authority to keep anyone who just says “fuck you” and leaves when you place them under citizen’s arrest- there’s no crime of resisting citizen’s arrest. It’s generally a pretty bad idea to try it and not encouraged by the police.

    Fascinating issue. I think there are some interesting Fourth Amendment cases on whether you can create probable cause for certain searches if you ask for extensive authentication of someone who, say, pounds on your door and days “Open up–police!”
