Trash Talk's bassist takes down drone camera with beer can – watch Trash Talk Tickets

Owner of quadcopter says he is "just glad no-one got hurt"

The owner of a drone downed by Trash Talk's bassist while it was being used to film their show says he is "just glad no-one got hurt".

The helicopter-like remote-controlled camera was being used to record the band's performance at the Zumiez Best Foot Forward event at the Michigan Theatre in Detroit on August 11. When the drone came close to the band onstage, Trash Talk bassist Spencer Pollard hurled a total of three beer bottles and cans at the device and brought it crashing down to the floor, causing $700 (£420) worth of damage, reports M Live. Watch a video of the incident – shot from the drone itself – above.

The drone's owner and operator, Harry Arnold of Detroit Drones, told M Live that an altercation with the band followed: "I expressed my bewilderment at why he would do that – I didn't use that line, but that's the gist of what happened – and he was like, 'Screw you,' and I was like, 'Screw you,' and that was that. There was mature language used."

He continued: "He endangered people. I look at him as a young man – just as I tell my son, 'You can't do things as fast as you think of them.' There are too many people in prison or dead just because things popped in their head to do… People had kids in the concert, and when it came down, if it had come down on a kid in a stroller, it could have dome some serious damage."

Arnold reports that his loss will be covered and he has no hard feelings toward Trash Talk. "Everything is cool with me. The promoter has promised to take care of my losses and I'm happy leaving it at that – and I wish the band all the luck and no hard feelings."

Trash Talk have not publicly commented on the incident.
