This week, Andrea Mears, 23, was charged with assault and breach of the peace for attacking a drone hobbyist who was flying a quadracoptor over a Connecticut beach, according to NBC Connecticut. Meanwhile in Seattle, a resident wrote to the Capitol Hill Seattle community blog to report that a drone had flown into her back garden and hovered next to the third-floor window of her home.
The woman said that when her husband challenged the drone operator, who was standing on the street outside their home, he claimed to be conducting "research", and insisted that it was legal for him to fly his drone over their property.
While drone enthusiasts are up in arms and Haughwout might well be completely innocent, the fact remains that these small remote-controlled aircraft are able to fly almost silently in the air, and most of the time, we have no idea what they are being used for.
