Re: After-Hours Club Took PA Man's Legal Gun
Don't know PA law about carrying in a bar, so won't comment on that.
DO know about bar security. Used to bounce, a million years ago.
Bar fight? Break it up. Throw them out. You don't detain. You're not a cop. You don't search. You're not a cop. You damn sure don't confiscate. You're not a cop.
"Detaining" is false arrest. Maybe kidnapping. Confiscation is theft. Depending on what was confiscated, maybe grand theft.
And "if you want your stuff back you have to buy it" would be theft, sale of stolen property, ransom and extortion.
There would be many people in jail and the club would be closed for some time. In Florida.
Maybe Yankees do things different.
