Detained [for questioning/investigation]. Some states allow limited detention for these things. In custody [protective]. Some states permit this for mentally distrubed persons or someone under threat of harm from another. Under arrest [charged with a crime]. One cannot be placed under arrest unless charged with a specific crime.
