A Border Patrol agent pointed a gun at the head of a Boy Scout and threatened to arrest him for snapping a picture of an agent near the Canadian border, KCCI reports.

The Iowa Boy Scout troop was on a three-week trip to Alaska when the incident happened, Troop 111 leader Jim Fox said.

Fox said the Boy Scouts were detained for about four hours while they were questioned and their van searched.

During the search, one of the Boy Scouts underwent a horrifying experience.

“He hears a snap of a holster, turns around, and here’s this agent, both hands on a loaded pistol, pointing at the young man’s head,” Fox said.

  1. Really need to do some fact checking before releasing your articles. There are ZERO Border Patrol Agents in Alaska. Border Patrol Agents patrol (roving patrol) the northern and southern border of the US, however they do not have a single station or agent in Alaska, not one. This information is easily verified. If a federal agent who was posted on the Alaska/Canada border had an interaction with this group when they were trying to enter into Alaska (this is done at a POE, or Port of Entry) unless you are trying to enter the US illegally. POE’s are manned by US Customs Agents (those are the guys who wear blue). US Border Patrol Agents wear green, and patrol in between POE’s to locate and arrest those who try to enter the country illegally or smuggle in narcotics or other illegal items, as well as secure our borders against terrorists; however they do not work in Alaska, not at all.
