In an ideal world, or perhaps in some countries, that "five word" test would be the way to go. Unfortunately, the US doesn't work that way. Our courts have declared that each situation has to be judged on the circumstances, and in some cases, actions which I would have bet were arrests were declared to be investigative detentions.
You should probably reconsider your comment.
