I’m sure if I were to exclude the Florida man part of the headline, you could probably figure out where this happened at.
A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging Wendell Doyle Goney with possession of a firearm as a convicted felon and the destruction of an aircraft. If he is convicted, Goney can face up to 30 years in federal prison.
According to some of the court documents, on July 11th, deputies in Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary at a 10-acre business property in Mount Dora. When deputies deployed a drone to assist with their search, the drone was destroyed by gunfire from a neighboring property.
When authorities came to the house where the drone was destroyed, authorities confronted Goney. He acknowledged that he had just shot down the drone with a .22 caliber rifle after saying that drones had been “harassing” him. Goney also admitted to the deputies that he could not lawfully possess a firearm — having over 20 felony charges to his name.
