Watch This Neighbor Swat a Drone Out of the Sky and Shatter It to Pieces


A drone took to the air, but a neighbor had other ideas.

The neighbor of the owner of the drone said, "You put that over my house, I'm going to be pissed off. Understand me?"

"Whoa, what the hell?" said the owner.

The neighbor swatted the $1,300 drone right out of the air with his t-shirt and broken pieces went flying.

"I don't even think that's legal," said the neighbor.

The owner replied, "It's completely legal."

Mike Luzansky, from Lucky Seven Drones, says they were trying to demonstrate the drone's maneuverability on a street in Huntington Beach, California, when the neighbor struck.

He told INSIDE EDITION, "It was kind of like one of those things, like, 'Did that just really happen?' The lens, you can see, is shattered. We don't know if there is internal damage. We don't believe that they can be repaired because there's no cameras available."

This is just the latest episode on the growing war on drones. Just last week a drone took a video over a house fire near Poughkeepsie, New York, and was targeted by firefighters on the ground. When the drone approached again, a fireman turned his hose on it once more.

John Thomson told INSIDE EDITION his $1,400 drone is not working properly after the soaking.

He says he's a former fireman himself, and was simply recording the video to put on fireman websites.

INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent asked, "Couldn't the firemen argue that you were distracting them?"

Thomson responded, "No. There's a lot of people taking pictures at fires, a lot of activity around a fire scene. You know, that shouldn't disturb anybody that's fighting a fire."

It's happening more and more. Now, the latest example of an unhappy landing.
