My question involves criminal law for the state of: IL
So, I'm a minor who sometime ago tried to shoplift alcohol and subsequently got caught. As I was leaving the store security personnel or maybe just an employee(Let's call him guy A) angrily yelled, asking me where I put the alcohol and approached me with an irate expression and imposing body language. I immediately froze up, my mind went blank, my body went stiff, and I couldn't respond. The same employee then quickly shouldered me backwards and another employee(Let's call him guy B) attempted to tackle me to the ground. All I could do is stand hapzardly stiff as he held me in place. The employee that yelled at me proceeded to grab my hair(I have long hair), yanking it to and fro in an effort that I assume was supposed to be neck control, it worked. I finally started to respond and grabbed my hair so it wouldn't be pulled out(it ended up being pulled out anyway) and with my balance off the same employee that initially tried to tackled me tackled me onto the ground and the employee that yanked my hair dealt a swift punch to my forehead as I fell to the ground while yelling that I stole from his family(I assume that the retailer is a family owned business). When I fell to the ground they removed the alcohol from my person and while I was pinned guy B lifted me up and quickly slammed me back on the ground, I suspect in anger. I quickly tried to get back up and run(I had no alcohol and these guys had no problem ruffing me up so at this point I didn't want to surrender). But yet another guy came in(Let's call him guy C, I'm actually not sure whether he was in it from the start, I could barely keep up with what was going on until I was pinned to the ground) and intercepted me before I could leave the premises. I was then tackled to the floor again, but it was quite painful and they laid on me to the point where I couldn't breath and I was in pain, when I squirmed to get air they simply slammed me back into this position. Then, when I decided to flip my body(it was the easiest way to breath) a cop came and I was detained.
May I mention that during this whole scherade I was quite scared not for the impending suckishness of being arrested, but because of the sheer anger of the employees. I would've calmly submitted if it weren't for the the way they initially came at me. Also, because of my fear I could barely keep up with what was happening so I may have left details out, if it weren't for a large tuft of hair that I easily pulled from my scalp I would've completely forgot that it happened. For about a half a day afterwards my remorse for stealing from the guys family was so great I actually thought I was a scumbag and the thoughts of it totally obscured my memory of the situation.
