An attendee at the slide asked him to stop, he protested, other parents also started telling him to stop, with one even accusing him of taking pictures of children to put on the internet. And here's the truly fun part: he, the accused, got two cops who backed up his claim that he was doing nothing wrong."
He said: ‘The children wanted to go on an inflatable slide and I started taking photos of them having a good time. Moments later the woman running the slide told me to stop.

‘I showed her the photos I had taken to prove my point. Then another woman joined in and said her child was also on the slide and did not want me taking pictures of the youngster.
