Video of the incident dropped on LiveLeak this morning, and shows the Connecticut man attempting to gather his gear as the woman calls 911 to report his “taking pictures of people with a helicopter plane.” It’s one thing to harass someone for taking pictures (she’s wrong for doing so, since they’re at a public beach where photographs are free to be taken), but it’s another to assault someone for taking those pictures, which she has no problem doing.

The man recorded the assault on his iPhone, and when police arrived, they arrested the woman after he showed them the footage.

From the drone pilot:

I never went below 50 feet save for take off/landing, then after the end of my last flight, some crazy lady came over and started taking pictures of me, and dialed 911 for the 3rd time in 15 minutes. They basically said that they’d send someone when one gets free during each of the 3 calls she made, she decided they didn’t care enough about someone obeying the law so when no one was around she assaulted me and she decided to stop when she got a phone call. I called the police to report the assault, and boy was the response big…10 or more vehicles arrived (cops, DEEP, and an ambulance). The police approached me very aggressively, believing her full story, and before anything else was said I brought up something that she missed— the fact that the cell phone in my hand has a camera, that was recording. I had video evidence that she went nuts completely unprovoked, and was the one that assaulted me. She was then charged with assault, and breach of peace and I gave the cops a copy of the video for their prosecution. I then also showed them my last flight where you can make out her colorful shirt getting up from the beach then following it until it lands which proved that she lied when claiming that she asked me to stop flying before calling the police.

At the end of it all, one of the officers said to me basically, “Flying that thing the way you were is fine, you’re not in any trouble. You can come back and fly, but just be aware that some people can be alarmed.”

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – A Myrtle Beach man and woman were arrested after they came to blows in a fight sparked when the man allegedly “passed gas” near the woman’s face, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.
The incident happened on Monday night around 7:45 pm at a house in the 900 block of 3rd Ave North, police said. The problems began when a man who routinely sleeps on the porch of the house, came inside while “intoxicated and `passed gas’ in (a woman’s) face while she was laying on the couch,” police wrote in a report. The woman then walked outside to escape the situation, but the man followed her. Once outside, the woman told police that while they were verbally arguing, the man walked toward her in a “threatening manner” and she then hit him 3 times in the face with a closed fist, police said in a report. A witness told police that the pair were both fighting over the initial “passed gas” incident. Darrell Ray McKnight, age 64, was transported to Grand Strand Regional Hospital for a swollen eye, police said. Jessica Annette Cerney, age 33, who works as a clerk at Scotchman Mobile, was not intoxicated and did not suffer injuries, police said.
They were both arrested on a charge of Disorderly Conduct Fighting / Force Company On Another, according to the Myrtle Beach Police.
