My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
NRS 200.460 Definition; penalty.
1. False imprisonment is an unlawful violation of the personal liberty of another, and consists in confinement or detention without sufficient legal authority.
2. A person convicted of false imprisonment shall pay all damages sustained by the person so imprisoned, and, except as otherwise provided in subsection 3, is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.
Hence, illegal deprivation of another’s freedom without probable cause creates a private right of action in tort. It is both a crime and a tort and applies to detention by a private party or government. It can happen indoors, outdoors, or in a vehicle as is your case. It does not usually apply to situations in which a person is observed committing a crime because that would be probable cause. However, any person detained for any reason is entitled to due process, or the detention is illegal.
If you’ve been wrongfully detained in Nevada, you may be able to recover compensation in a civil action or private civil litigation. To have a viable case, you must prove that you were arrested without a reasonable belief that you committed a felony, were treated with excessive force, were held for an excessive amount of time, or that your civil rights were violated.
Just know that false imprisonment or false arrest is very difficult to prove but your video will very important. If the police officer had no reason or belief that there was any type criminal behavior or dangerous threat from within a vehicle, he had no reason to require you to anything besides provide your ID and insurance and issue you a ticket. He would either need "a reasonable belief that criminal action is afoot" or "probable cause" that there was some type of criminal behavior going on in order to require more than that. You will need to retain an attorney in Nevada to pursue this claim in civil court.
