Wild Friday: Wearing Google Glass May Get You Arrested!

You can’t even get a Google Glass yet, and maybe you don’t want to!  It could get you arrested like a fellow who was nabbed by ICE half way through a film in Columbus, Ohio.  He says “a guy comes near my seat, shoves a badge that had some sort of a shield on it, yanks the Google Glass off my face and says ‘follow me outside immediately’”.

“After a long time somebody came with a laptop and an USB cable at which point he told me it was my last chance to come clean. I repeated for the hundredth time there is nothing to come clean about and this is a big misunderstanding so the [ICE officer] finally connected my Glass to the computer, downloaded all my personal photos and started going though them one by one … Then they went through my phone, and five minutes later they concluded I had done nothing wrong.”

Homeland security has confirmed the incident did take place. Khaalid Walls, a spokesperson for ICE, said, “Local authorities briefly interviewed a man suspected of using an electronic recording device to record a film at an AMC theater in Columbus.  The man, who voluntarily answered questions, confirmed to authorities that the suspected recording device was also a pair of prescription eye glasses in which the recording function had been inactive. No further action was taken.”
