Florida Man Shoots Down Every Walmart Drone He Sees

Dennis Winn is behind bars after he allegedly shot down a Walmart delivery drone, rendering it inoperable. Lake County deputies were called to Walmart in Clermont after drone delivery representatives reported the incident. A Walmart representative said that a 2-man crew was campaigning in a nearby community, which included mock deliveries to the crew to attract business and interest. While awaiting the drone’s delivery descent, the crew stood in front of a home located in a cul-de-sac. When the drone began to descend, one of the reps said he heard a loud sound consistent with a gunshot. He then saw an elderly man wearing blue jeans and a blue shirt at the side of the home holding a gun towards the sky, seemingly aiming at the drone. The crew returned to Walmart and had the drone fly back to the store. Deputies said that after Walmart reps inspected the drone, they discovered $2,500 worth of damage to its payload system. Deputies returned to the home where the shooting took place, where they met with 72-year-old Winn. When asked if he had an incident with a drone, Winn told the deputies that he saw the drone fly over his home, prompting him to retrieve his gun and fire at it. He believed the drone was watching him. Winn was arrested and charged with shooting an aircraft, criminal mischief with damage over $1,000, and discharging a firearm on public or residential property.
