Kentucky Cops Arrest Teen for Standing up for Right to RecordBy Carlos Miller

A group of Kentucky teens were in a field playing Airsoft, a paintball-like game involving realistic-looking guns that shoot non-lethal rounds, when they were swarmed by police officers with high-powered assault rifles.
Radcliff police were able to hold their fire long enough to determine it was only a game, but when one of the teens walked up to the cops with a GoPro video camera, an officer ordered to turn it off.
The teen was about to comply when 18-year-old Ryan Seaman piped in, telling his friend he was under no legal obligation to do so.
That got him arrested on several charges, including criminal trespass, assisting minors to commit criminal trespass and carrying a concealed deadly weapon, which was nothing but a pocket knife.
