What. A. Shot.
Spencer Pollard, bass player for rock outfit Trash Talk, obviously has quite an arm on him judging by the evidence above. At a gig last weekend at the Zumiez Best Foot Forward show in Detroit fan Harry Arnold of Detroit Drone was filming the show by way of his pretty unique equipment when Pollard suddenly took exception to the intrusion and launched a series of projectiles at the contraption.
The third shot, a can of beer, was a direct hit and sent the $700 camera crashing to the ground all but destroying it. The silver lining, however, was that the drone captured some pretty incredible footage before crashing back down to earth.
Harry Arnold of Detroit Drone, who was operating the machine, said he exchanged some rather NSFW language with Pollard over the incident.
"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."
Arnold 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."
The concert promoter has vowed to reimburse Arnold for the damage to the camera and Trash Talk (perhaps wisely) have declined to comment on the issue.
