Lawyer: "آ…if you see something you think is improper, the best approach is to call the police or the FAA, not to take your shotgun and take matters into your own hands."

A Rutherford County man flying a new drone with his 7-year-old son was caught by surprise when someone shot it down. Gary Sammons told News 2 he was flying the DJ I Phantom 4 Drone near his Rutherford County home last Saturday when the incident occurred. Sammons said his son was watching the drone’s path on an iPad and asked him who people on the ground were. As he moved the drone closer and hovered, that’s when someone at a neighbor’s home fired several shots.
