There is a bit of fuss on the radio at the moment about someone who was charged with kidnapping a young man whom he had caught red-handed doing something or other. I was reminded of a case a few years ago where a minicab driver had a dispute over his fare with a passenger, and drove past the passenger's house and kept going while the argument continued. He was duly arrested and charged with kidnapping. The driver wanted to see a lawyer so we gave him unconditional bail and that was the end of it as the CPS took one look and decreed NFA - No Further Action.
