article imageVideo: Woman recorded and arrested after assaulting man

By Walter McDaniel     Jun 9, 2014 in Crime
Madison - New technology can be amazing but sometimes it just makes people mad. In the case of Andrea Mears she allegedly got so mad that she attacked the user of a drone with a built-in camera.
The man who was attacked goes by the name 'Hogwit' and posted his story to a forum shortly after. He was using a drone to take videos so that he could practice with it. It was a public beach and the man was well within his rights. He was suddenly accosted by Andrea Mears, 23, who had taken offense to this.
In the video Mears calls him a pervert in the first few moments and grabs his shirt causing it to tear. She then attacks his head and torso area while yelling and threatening him with further violence. For his part the young man involved requests that she get off of him and calls for help.
As you can see above he was recording the whole thing with his iPhone. As such when the police arrived they questioned him about the scuffle and he had this to show them. If he had not recorded it then it would have been his word against hers and that is no situation to be in with male-female violence. According to reports Mears was arrested and taken away by police since the video clearly showed her attacking him.
The event reportedly took place in Hammonasset Beach State Park and the victim hasn't had problems any other time. He even has a YouTube channel full of his videos. Police let him know he was within his rights and was in no trouble. It seems that more personal photography could be very useful in avoiding unjust cases. The video has also gone viral which raises awareness on the topic.
