False Imprisonment / Arrest
False Imprisonment is an intentional and unlawful detainment, confinement or restraint of a person which deprives someone of their freedom of movement and is against their will. Sometimes it is by physical force or actions and sometimes by an express or implied threat of potential force.

The confinement need not be by police and need not be in jail or prison, but can be done by anyone and anywhere where the person's freedom of movement is restrained.

There is also a false arrest cause of action and one need not have a false arrest for a false imprisonment.
