Before you flaunt that Google Glass, remember that Homeland Security may be looking right back at you.

That’s the lesson an Ohio man learned when he was detained after wearing Google Glass, a computer-in-eyewear device, to a movie theater, reports Computerworld.

The authorities, concerned the glass was used for movie piracy, interrogated the man. No charges were brought after authorities found the glass included prescription glasses and the recording function was not engaged, reports Computerworld.

But what a time the man had before he was released.

USA Today reports:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Khaalid Walls says the man voluntarily answered questions from officers with ICE Homeland Security Investigations.

AMC says it contacted authorities after identifying someone wearing a recording device. Spokesman Ryan Noonan says the company takes movie theft seriously.

Both ICE, which investigates piracy and counterfeiting, and the Motion Picture Association of America, were involved.

Perhaps the takeaway lesson in all of this is: Remember: Big Brother really is watching.
