Hillview man arrested for shooting down drone

shooting drones

If a drone trespasses on your property and takes photos of your children do you have the right to do something about it?   I’m not sure if the problem here is that he destroyed the drone owner’s property which was trespassing over his yard or the fact that he did it with a shotgun in a residential area.   I’d be a little more worried about people firing guns into the air than I would be about drones spying on me.  I wonder if he had just taken it out with a garden hose or something if there would have been less fuss about it?
