Google Glass isn't just for 50-something tech nerds from Palo Alto to fool around with on their Segways, anymore. It turns out that real, actual people are also wearing these things as they go about their daily lives. Like, for instance, when they're taking a stroll down the boardwalk in Wildwood over the July 4th holiday.

Chris Barrett, a documentary film maker (and founder of PRServe, so forget what I said before about normal people wearing Google Glass), was using his new gadget to video tape his nighttime stroll in Wildwood when he caught the tail end of a fight and a subsequent arrest.

Tonight, I was testing out the extended video recording option with Google Glass on the Boardwalk of Wildwood, New Jersey. I walked right into the tail end of a fight happening on Jersey Shore boardwalk and filmed the first arrest through the lens of my Google Glass.

This video is proof that Google Glass will change citizen journalism forever.

In the video, he walks into a typical Jersey Shore T-shirt shop (get it TURNT UP!) and then catches wind of some of the chaos unfolding further down the boards. You can see bros pulling bros back from the scrap and officers responding to the ordeal. Of course the crowd is chanting "USA! USA! USA!" because, 'Murica. [h/t Uproxx]
