Color Shasta County Red: Some arresting situations 10/07/2020

Published October 8, 2020

Yesterday was my first time to observe an in-person citizen’s arrest, something I’d always associated with bold, courageous actions following a crime; a special-situation tool implemented only in case of an emergency, when authentic law enforcement officers were needed, but unavailable. Scenarios could include a good Samaritan apprehending a drunk driver in a hit-and-run situation, or a brave citizen intervening during an assault, or during a purse-snatching, or an attempted kidnapping. Things like that.
