Google Glass’ presence is far from ubiquitous.  However, over the weekend a gentlemen named Chris Barrett captured what is said to be the first police arrest using the head mounted device.

First and foremost, the arrest transpired in New Jersey – no surprise there.  That said, Chris appears to have been wandering the Wildwood boardwalk where he happened upon a fight.  Unfortunately, the actual fight wasn’t caught on video, but as you can see in the posted video one of the participants was captured being placed into cuffs.  But, that isn’t to say he was arrested.  In fact, he may just have been detained.

So what’s next?  A POV fight?  Unlikely, since the vast majority – and this is just conjecture – of Google Glass owners aren’t the brawling type.
