A guy was busted in a Columbus, Ohio movie theater for wearing a pair of those Google Glasses. Federal agents pulled him from his seat, confiscated the glasses and accused him of illegally taping the movie with the camera feature. The guy says the feds interrogated him for an hour, telling him he wasn't under arrest, and that it was a 'voluntary interview,' but if he chose not to cooperate bad things may happen to him. The guy told the agents he wasn't recording anything and only wore them in the theater because they include his prescription lenses. After all that, the agents did what they should've done in the first place and brought in a laptop and USB cable to check his Glass and phone before finally he wasn't recording.

Manatee, Florida's Alicia Nunes and her mother got into an argument at 4:27 a.m. Tuesday.

The daughter was taken to jail and if you were wondering what the argument was about, it seems that mom took away Alicia's hookah smoking pipe because she was afraid her daughter might burn down the house.
