Grimes, Iowa, Boy Scout Troop 111 was driving into Alaska recently when one of the scouts took
 a picture of the official, which provoked border agents into detaining and searching the scouts at gunpoint for over four hours.
“The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” Troop 111 leader Jim Fox told KCCI, adding that the agent claimed it was illegal to take photos of officials.
When another scout began removing luggage from the top of their van to be searched, one of the agents drew his gun on him.
The troop was later released with no injuries.
Although Fox was outraged over the incident, Charles Vonderheid with the Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts of America told KCCI that they want to make sure the scouts “follow the rules.”
“A Scout is a good citizen,” he said. “It would be a great lesson in civics for that young man and that troop.”
But it is not illegal to take photos of government officials as long as it does not interfere with their official duties.
