You are correct about alot being left out of that, I have the information and I will also post a wiki link.
"The case developed several years ago  when a youth pastor was arrested at the Galleria Mall in Roseville, California, for having a
conversation about religion with two other people. Matthew Snatchko, who works with youth at his church, was interrupted in the middle of a
conversation by a security guard. A second guard joined the confrontation and told Snatchko he was being placed under citizen's arrest for
"trespassing." The pastor said he agreed to leave but instead, the guards grabbed him, roughly shoved him against a storefront window and handcuffed
him tightly enough to draw blood. Snatchko later was taken to the police station where he was booked on charges of battery and trespassing. A short
time later the charges were dropped, but officials with the Pacific Justice Institute decided to pursue a case against the mall over the impact of the
policy on free speech. After a Placer County Superior Court judge in 2008 affirmed the mall's regulations, an appeal was launched to the 3rd
Appellate District in Sacramento, and the briefs have just now been completed for that court's review. The case is being pursued under the state's
constitutional provision for free speech, which extends protections to private locations, because the 1st Amendment to the Constitution deals directly
with government restrictions. Pacific Justice said Snatchko originally was confronted during a casual conversation with two other shoppers about faith
when a store employee listened to the conversation and alerted mall security guards. Besides the ban on conversations with strangers about religion or
politics, the mall also bans any clothing with religious or political messages. " The charges against Matthew Snatchko have been dropped
The funny thing about this is that the guards made this situation alot worse than it should have been. Its the old situation where the security
guards/off duty cops wanted to show said person who was boss.
