Man yanked from theater and questioned for wearing Google Glass during movie

If you decide to wear your Google Glass in a movie theater, you may want to reconsider after you see what happened to an unfortunate moviegoer in Ohio.

According to USA Today, an unnamed man was yanked from an AMC theater and taken into a room for intense questioning—by federal agents. His Google Glass was also confiscated.

A nice date night with his wife soon took a serious turn for the worse.

"What followed was over an hour of the 'feds' telling me I am not under arrest, and that this is a 'voluntary interview,' but if I choose not to cooperate bad things may happen to me," he told the Gadgeteer. "I kept telling them that I wasn't recording anything—my Glass was off," he explained.

A couple of weeks prior, he had gotten prescription lenses put into his Glass so he could see. That point was not taken, and the questioning continued.

After several hours, someone came in with a laptop and a USB, connected his Glass to the computer, downloaded his personal photos and started going through them one by one.

To add insult to injury, they then proceeded to go through his phone, but later they concluded he had done nothing wrong.
