Restraint is part of self defense???

Not in any statute I've ever read. Retraint might be part of a citizens arrest, but in self defense, when the attack on you is over, it's over. Peace officers get sued and tried criminally for stepping out of bounds too.

No way in a repo situation would an officer "hook up" a subject while you repoed his vehicle and then let him go. If it got to the point where he was "hooked up" he'd get the rest of the trip through the booking room, for assault, disorderly conduct, whatever.

No way you should ever do that. You'd surely be arrested and do felony prison time for unlaful restraint and aggravated battery.
