    The Clinton teen who garnered national media attention after posting a YouTube video of a drone firing a gun has been arrested for allegedly attacking officers in the lobby of the Clinton Police Department.

    Police said Austin Haughwout, 18, was wanted in connection with a suspicious motor vehicle incident that occurred July 19. The arrest warrant charged Haughwout with interfering with an officer and failure to obey an officer's signal.

    Haughwout turned himself in Tuesday evening, but once inside the police department, refused to cooperate, according to police. At one point, he allegedly tried to turn around and walk out.

    When two officers kept him from leaving, Haughwout fought back, "striking and kicking at them repeatedly" while they worked to put him in handcuffs, according to police. Both officers suffered minor injuries but did not need medical treatment.



    Haughwout was taken to a holding cell, where he seemed to have trouble breathing, according to police. An ambulance brought him to the Middlesex Memorial Shoreline Clinic in Westbrook for a medical evaluation.

    Once released from the hospital, Haughwout was taken back to the police department, where he was arrested. Police served Haughwout the original warrant and also charged him with two counts of assaulting an officer and one count of interfering with an officer.

    He was held on $20,000 bond and appeared in court Thursday. It's not clear if Haughwout has an attorney. NBC Connecticut has reached out to the family for comment.

    Police said Haughwout's arrest is not related to the department's investigation into the drone video. Authorities have said the drone, while "alarming," does not appear to have broken any state laws.

    Federal authorities are also investigating the drone.

    Can you imagine what we could do if we installed weapons onto drones?



    It's cracking me up how people are pretending that this is a new idea. We've been bombing the shit out of the rest of the world for how long with drones?

    I'm going to mount a chocolate donut to a drone and fly it around Robin.

    Doesn't an agent from SHIELD show up when you invent something like this?

    curb feral cat populations?

    I think the big deal is that this means that it would be easy for any Joe, Dick and Mary to replicate.
    It would make public gatherings, like concerts, ball games, beaches a bitch

    Sadly, the remote only has a range of 12 feet, so you could only kill a guy who would light off roman candles from his head.

    I'm sorry - I meant from the original drone story from a couple days ago. Not his arrest :)

    Verizon sells drones. It's getting ridiculous.

    Here is a young man who shows some initiative by mixing his two favorite things: guns and flying guns.
