Chris Barrett, a PR specialist from South Jersey, is the man behind what might be the first fight and arrest filmed with Google Glass.  Your smartphone made it easier to catch incidents like this, now Google Glass will keep you from even having to reach in your pocket.

Barrett, who runs a PR agency called PRServe, filmed the fight on the boardwalk on the Jersey Shore during the Fourth of July. Google Glass is Google’s wearable computer that looks like a pair of glasses that another South Jersey man got early too, among others in the region.

There’s not a lot of viral-ready physical action — more the melee and crowd of a spectacle on the boardwalk — so focus more on the furtive glances people seem to give Barrett to figure out what he’s wearing (strange looking glasses).

Watch the video below.

As VentureBeat pointed out in its story on the video, the instance points to the fact that surveillance could become easier and inconspicuous than ever.
