Each state has its own definition of what constitutes excessive force, and each state also has different regulations regarding when and how bar security can physically engage with customers.

In some states, very specific laws outline when and how much force bar security can use to subdue a patron. In other states, the laws are much vaguer and leave it up to the discretion of the security staff to determine when force is necessary.
