Man Swats Drone Out Of The Air With His T-Shirt [Video]

Lucky 7 Drones, a California drone company, has filed a police report against a Huntington Beach man after he used his T-shirt to swat a $1,350 drone to the ground.

The video was shot by Mike Luzanksy, who owns Lucky 7 Drones, shows the DJI Phantom 3 drone hovering a few feet in the air in the middle of a street when a shirtless man appears.

The man tells Luzanksy not to fly the drone near his house and proceeds to smack it from the sky with his shirt, sending it crashing to the ground.

Huntington Beach Police Lt. John Domingo said the man who swatted the drone told police he was scared that the drone operators would use the device to spy on him in his home. Domingo said when it comes to drone flying, he would like to see respect and common sense exercised by both drone operators and the general public.

Police investigated the incident, but the man, whose name was not released, has not been arrested. The District Attorney’s office will decide whether to file charges, police said.
