Arrest

An arrest is the taking of a person into custody in a lawful manner. Custody may be an actual or constructive seizure of the person. No formal statement is required if custody takes place.

An investigative detention is not an arrest. An investigative detention is a limited restriction of the personal mobility of a person for a brief period of time, usually in public, and usually without moving the person to another location. An investigative detention may include a brief questioning.
