Your question is posted under 'Travel' but it seems to refer to a security guard in a shop. The situations are quite different.

Okay... they can detain you if they have an articulable belief that you are a threat to airline travel or is in conduction of criminal conduct.
Matthew has the right idea. Let them call law enforcement and you can argue your case if you feel you were wrongly detained.Source(s): Work part-time as a TSA officer.

They can try to detain you peaceably. You're supposed to wait until the police arrive. If you don't then they will try and charge you with another offense resisting a merchant.

You could, but why? He's only doing his job - usually to keep you and others safe.
