Frank, The statute number is what I am having a hard time finding without a law library and a person to help me go through them...

And not all "forcible felony" crimes requires a person to be immediately at risk of death or GBH... Arson is one... It does not require the structure to be a dwelling nor occupied...

Here is what I find in a quickie search and think this is the statute to what we discuss but I could be wrong or missing some sub components...

Title XLVI

Chapter 776

View Entire Chapter
776.07 Use of force to prevent escape.—
(1) A law enforcement officer or other person who has an arrested person in his or her custody is justified in the use of any force which he or she reasonably believes to be necessary to prevent the escape of the arrested person from custody.
