Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has publicly accused a local television executive of “personally” flying a drone over his stately private home in a Louisville suburb on Tuesday morning.
Bevin made this accusation after seemingly accusing other local media of “flying directly over and around my home, filming my children.” The entire incident appears to be related to a local property dispute.
The drone that was just flying over my home & filming my children was personally flown by @WDRBNews Director https://t.co/8cEacM885B

The WDRB executive, Barry Fulmer, wrote in response on Twitter:
.@GovMattBevin WDRB was flying a drone in accordance to the FAA rules to cover news happening at your home.
There is NO video of children. https://t.co/ZBoBiJTfsn
