A Google Glass beta tester captured a fight and arrest during a rowdy Fourth of July celebration in Wildwood, N.J., in what is one of the first police responses captured by the new technology.

In an interview with VentureBeat, Chris Barrett said he wanted to test Glass out on the boardwalk after a fireworks show. Barrett, founder of PRServe and a documentary filmmaker, captured police arresting a shirtless man following a short scuffle.

"With Glass I went closer to the action than I probably should have and saw a couple fights going on," he said. "I think I got the first arrest with Google Glass."

The next level of privacy invasion. I'm so excited.

Good for this tool. I'm glad he's so excited about it.

Regardless of how we feel about being captured on video personally, any event that occurs in the public is subject to recording by the public. Its not going away anytime soon, so we might as well get comfortable with it.

This technology is only the next step, there will be others in the future.
