Crazed Woman Attacks Kid For Flying Quadcopter

Submitted by: 1234 2 years ago in Weird




I went to a nearby beach that is a whopping 2 miles long, set up, talked to some people that were curious what my "thing" was, demonstrated the loiter feature (pulling the quad to one direction or another), demonstrated rtl (flying it away then having it return), and make a lot of people think the quad was just awesome. 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... she said something to the effect of, "There"s a guy here taking pictures at the beach with a helicopter plane." (I distinctly remember her saying, "with a helicopter plane," because that just sounds hilarious.) 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)... They first listened to her story of lies (she claimed I was taking close ups of people in bikinis, and that she had asked me to stop flying before calling the police, and that I was the one that assaulted her, and and and). 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."

Crazed woman is crazed. He showed a lot more restraint than I would have been able to muster.

I live across the street from a busy beach. The only thing more annoying than the sound of drones are the motorcycles that are so loud they set off car alarms. Third are people who set their car alarms at the beach. Ha ha. I sound like my old neighbor.

SleepyH- Democrats understand the concept perfectly clear. Republicans and Christians do not.

A few notes:
You have no expectation of privacy in public (as already noted).
He was doing nothing illegal.
She was out of control.
While all three of the above are true, please be aware that some people `expect` privacy and do not want to be photographed of filmed. This is sometimes irrational (not always) and can result in confrontation and physical violence. The fact that what you are doing is LEGAL will only help at the trial...not while they are pounding the crap out of you.

Sew the vagina shut so she can`t pass on the bad genes. Punch her unconscious for the procedure.

SleepyH: "Freedom Of Speech does NOT mean freedom from the consequences of Free Speech."

Could someone please tell that to the democrats, especially Obama.

I am surprised by the number of people who will cry about Freedom of Speech but then protest when their "Speech" broadcast to others.

Freedom Of Speech does NOT mean freedom from the consequences of Free Speech.

You have no right to photographic privacy when you are in public.

If you don`t want to chance having your picture taken then don`t leave your house.
It`s that simple.

Runemang: Wow. I`m going to have to remember this ruling. At least now people, in Illinois, can record things and post them to YouTube without fear of being prosecuted.

Thanks for the heads up.

It disturbs me how easily this kid would`ve been f`d if he hadn`t been recording it.

It disturbs me more that, at least here in Illinois, it is illegal to record people without their permission ... even in a situation like this.


Exactly. This woman tried to take control of the situation, almost putting an innocent person in a terrible spot. And overall being the woman she is, plauged a completely nice day all because she wasn`t getting as much attention as the helicopter plane..

I commend this guy for putting that bitch down. I hate women who believe they can control whatever the drat they want.

It`s sad that people are getting so paranoid like this. I think the boy handled this very maturely and responsibly. It sounds like this young woman needs medication and/or therapy. I hope she gets it.

A lot of innocent men have gone to jail because a woman has lied.

I cannot tell you how many times I was called to a disturbance where a woman claimed to have been assaulted, but was approached by witnesses who stated otherwise. However, they were unwilling to submit an official statement because they were neighbors or friends, and had to live with/around the complaintant afterward.

I know for a fact that a number of innocent men have been charged and jailed, but there`s only so much an officer can do when laws are written they way they are in some states.

"Wanna stop?"
"No."
That`s when you punch her. She has abandoned the protect of "don`t hit a girl" social contract.

Notice the whole "pervert" angle. People are so paranoid that everyone with a camera is a sexual predator that they end up like this crazy bitch.
