Only if you can prove he is guilty of a crime. Suspicion (however reasonable) is not enough. Sorry to be legalistic about this, but you did ask.

Best Answer

I think your analysis is incorrect. the person who performs the arrest (usually police) is not the same person as decides guilt (the courts). Without such separation of powers any person could be judge, jury and executioner.

Best Answer

You have missed the point. Police (and other authorized persons) can make arrests on suspicion whereas ordinary citizens cannot. They lay themselves open to charges of assault and false imprisonment unless they are able to demonstrate the guilt of the arrested person.
