    No, it would not be entrapment or "unlawful imprisionment" where someone is held against their will. I'm guessing that what happened will not aid you in your case to get back your car.
    Entrapment is when someone is induced and provoked to commit a crime by law enforcement for the purposes of bringing charges against that person.
