Declared to be "detained" is probably why the ACLU was willing to take the case -- the cop F'd Up -- this also demonstrates the value of a audio recording of the incident, and the importance of asking, "am I free to go" if the cops are not so kind as to state you are being detained (euphemism for arrest).
