She “showed no signs of elation” when the police arrived to rescue her and charge the man, according to authorities.
An Orem, Utah couple in their thirties has been charged with allegedly using their drone to take videos of people in their bedrooms and bathrooms, according to police in the area.
The couple, Aaron Dennis Foote, 39, and Terisha Lee Norviel, 34, were each charged with a class A misdemeanor for using a concealed or disguised electronic device to do voyeurism.
The couple found themselves in trouble after an Orem man saw the drone flying outside his bathroom window and chased it down in his truck until it landed in a parking lot.
When he looked at the SD card in the drone, he found several videos of people in their homes. There was also video of a person flying the drone, according to a police affidavit.
Orem police then put out a threatening Facebook post, but ended up locating the people charged by identifying a vehicle in some of the footage.
In the past year, three people in Vancouver have been killed by sucker punches and others have been placed in hospital, including a young man one punched while on a walk through downtown with his wife Thursday.
“We’ve had about 10 of these incidents in Vancouver this year that have resulted in serious injury like this — comas, head trauma, brain injuries. Three of them have resulted in death,” Vancouver Police’s Constable Brian Montague said at a press conference following the most recent incident.
The incident involved a 26-year-old man Vancouverite walking down the street with his wife. Two groups of people were arguing with each other on the street when the couple passed them. The 26-year-old was knocked to the ground by one of the men in the group who had turned and swung at him. He was rendered unconscious before he hit the ground. Knocking his head on the ground, he suffered a brain injury that was later treated in hospital with surgery that removed a part of his brain.
“This could happen to you or me walking down the street. There is that possibility,” Montague told reporters Thursday. “We do have individuals that come into the city that are looking for trouble, that are looking to get into fights, and unfortunately this is the result sometimes.
“In speaking with our investigators, they’re seeing more of them — or at least have seen more of them — recently. I don’t know if you’d consider it a ‘trend,’ but it’s something that is very disturbing to us.
“Some are random. Some are individuals that have a dispute in or outside of a bar. Someone bumps into each other, they may not know each other prior,” said Montague.
Because many of those one-punched are innocent bystanders, Montague said, he did not know how people could protect themselves. He said police were focusing on warning the perpetrators that there would be repercussions for their actions.
Currently, Vancouver police are recommending a charge of manslaughter. Manslaughter carries no minimum penalty. The maximum is life in prison.
