This guy is one of my new heroes. William Merideth saw a drone hovering over his property - not flying over, but hovering over. So he shot it down with birdshot. Then 4 guys drive to his house to complain about their downed drone.
"Are you the son of a bitch that shot my drone?" one said, according to Merideth. (i am still lolling) - Who does that?
Merideth was arrested for wanton endangerment but released after a day. I sure hope the people choose the side of decency and don't the protect sleezy drone perverts.
Personal drone use is getting out of hand. I think they have their place, but hovering around and spying is not one of them. We have this problem around here and its just sleezy creepy behavior that cops don't even know how to deal with yet. So kudos to this guy for taking care of the problem himself. I think its fair to treat hovering drones as slow motion clay pidgeons. PULL!
