Shocking to the core, but we’ve got the photo to prove it. It’s the incident that all of Southern California is talking about. Is this guy insane? Or is he our hero? How would you have responded in his situation? Let us know by voting down below.
Larry Breaux of Valencia, California, is the homeowner who shot down the drone. He told INSIDE EDITION he believes the drone was sent over his house in a deliberate act of harassment.
“I get an anonymous phone call on my answering machine, ‘Hey, get rid of your eyesore sign or you won’t have any privacy’” said Breaux.
The sign is at the entrance of his property and it advertises a Kickstarter campaign to save money for an organic lemon business he wants to start.
INSIDE EDITION’s Jim Moret asked Breaux, “Do you believe that your neighborsare upset because you have that sign out there?”
He responded, “I believe one of them is.”
Breaux showed us how he was sitting next to a shotgunhe uses to scare off coyotes when he saw the drone hovering outside his window.
“I throw my cell phone to my friend, ‘Hey, videotape me.’”
He said he couldn’t get a shot off at first because the shotgun was on safety, but when he turned the corner, he managed to bring down the drone with a single shot.
Somehow Larry’s shot missed the computer chip that was recording video.
Breaux believes the person controlling the drone was standing on top of the hill which is on Larry’s property, and when he shot the drone out of the sky, he heard that person start to yell.
