There's a posting today over at telling the story of a photographer being handcuffed, "interrogated" and later visited (at 3am) by law enforcement asking more questions. It's not clear from the posting whether any photos were destroyed or even if the camera was returned.

Actually, there's scant information in the posting and its veracity is uncertain. But this kind of thing has been happening around the country for a while. NPR has covered it, and there's even a Flickr group about prohibited photo taking. It seems some cops will ignore certain rules when enforcing the law. To them, taking photographs is apparently a threat to our nation and its liberties.
