I tried to kill myself and the police found out and came. They called an ambulance and I was taken to a mental hospital. There was no resistance or use of force. By the time they came I was done trying and had was sleeping. There was just a big pool of blood. An ambulance came and they left. Was I detained?
It sounds like a voluntary commitment. To get a better answer, please tell us what is the underlying question that causes you to ask about detention? Were you accused of evading arrest or detention? Are you concerned about statements you may have made and are now hoping for suppression vis-a-vis a Miranda argument? Give us some context so we can give you a better answer. Are you asking for law enforcement purposes or does this relate to an insurance claim or something else?
