RCGroups.com interviewed the quad pilot was that was recently assaulted by a women at a public beach for shooting aerial video.

Recently an RCGroups user was flying his quad at Hammonasset Beach in Madison, CT. He flew out his four lipos and was packing up when he was approached by a woman. She said she was on the phone with the police and tried to take his batteries. She was upset that the pilot had been shooting aerial footage. It was at that point the pilot started recording the incident with his phone. It was a good thing he did, because the next thing RCGroups user Hogwit1 knew the woman was attacking him. She pummeled him to the ground and stopped only when she received a phone call. The man called the police, and thanks to his video the woman has to go to court. The video went viral and the term "drone" was thrown around by the news agencies.

I contacted Hogwit1 via Skype, and we talked about the incident:

Newb but learning
Just wow. I'm always shocked that people believe in their "right to privacy" when out in public! I have a friend who is a fellow RCG user who was in major trouble and even arrested from flying his quad at an accident scene, luckily his gopro was still recording on the ground during the interaction with the police to back up his story. He was facing felonies before the lawyers issued the gopro footage to the courts.
