We’ve been highlighting crimes against photography and photographers for over a year now. Some have been scary for the shooter , while others have caused more harm to equipment and celebrities’ reputations than anything else.

This one though might take the cake for the most ridiculous. The story basically goes like this:

1) Amtrak announces a photography contest.
2) Dwayne Kerzic takes photographs of Amtrak trains for Amtrak’s photography contest
3) Amtrak police arrest Kerzic for taking photographs for Amtrak’s photography contest.

If this sounds absurd, that’s because it is. Check out the full story in the clip from Monday’s Colbert Report below.
