the drone pilot came storming over to the owners property and menaced the owner.
And how do you/they know that? Oh yeah, the owner told them.
The previous article had *nothing* from the point of view of the pilot, all you heard from was the oh so reasonable owner -- how he carefully used the safest shot, how it was hovering over his daughter, how it wasn't the first incident, how his careful display of force is what kept the belligerent pilot and his crew at bay, how he doesn't dislike "drones" -- he thinks they're fine and dandy, etc. Personally, it sounds like he was setting himself up to be the "reasonable man" and it's not clear how much of that was actually true.
Ultimately, if we can't trust the telemetry to be unmodified ... we can't trust the statements of the homeowner either.
In any event, the police were there and spoke to everybody involved, and they only arrested one person ...
