A U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agent recently pulled a gun on a central Iowa Boy Scout troop that was trying to cross from Canada into Alaska, suggesting that at least one United States border is secure.

Boy Scout Troop 111 Leader Jim Fox told KCCI-TV Monday that the scary incident occurred after one Scout attempted to take a picture of a border official.

The angry photographed official lectured the Scout for his action, explaining that taking a picture of a federal agent is a federal offense.

“The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” Fox said.
