Sorry I hadn’t had time to see just what was going on when I saw that. I figure they were using one to look for him and he shot at it.

Ya, he shot at a "police" drone. Anyone shoots at your drone and the police will most like say huh?
Not in the USA except (possibly) some very rural areas.

Move to the US. You don't shoot at drones, even in rural areas. My County Sheriff uses them, and he has zero tolerance for even threatening to shoot another's drone. It IS illegal to shoot at drones in the US, regardless of location. And quite stupid as well. And I'm pretty rural, just so's ya know. (We hear banjos, off in the distance late at night, purty reg'lar... 😁)

I wrote the DA in that Co. and asked him if they were going to charge him with shooting at the drone but
he has not returned my e mail yet . Will post what he says if he ever does .
I did let him know we all were wanting to know .
