    But if you "arrested" Jamie Dimon what would you do with him? He has not been charged with any crime. If you called the local police they would arrest you. Taking him into "custody" would be assault and battery and kidnapping which could subject you to a long prison term. As an individual you have few rights to pursue criminal matters. Those are left to the local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Your remedies are all in civil court.
