It was man versus machine on a California beach last weekend when a drone caused quite the kerfuffle. In the end, the drone ended up destroyed, and the man ended up in jail.
Augustine Lehecka told NBC 7 San Diego that he felt "violated" by a low-flying drone that was videotaping Moonlight Beach in Encinitas on Sunday, with small children nearby. When it flew too close, he threw his T-shirt at the unmanned flying tech device, bringing it to the ground, he told the local NBC station.
But the owner of the drone wasn't pleased—telling NBC 7 that Lehecka did $750 worth of damage to the quad copter. San Diego County sheriff's deputies arrested Lehecka, who spent a night in jail for probable cause of felony vandalism.
