CNET (Chris Matyszczyk) reports on a possible reason for the overflight:

Why, though, might have Fulmer chosen to pilot his way over Bevin’s home?

One possibility is a story that aired on WDRB on Tuesday. It involved a controversy surrounding the true value of the governor’s residence, which was purchased through a limited liability company. The local Courier-Journal referred to it as a possible “sweetheart deal.”

For some thoughts on whether this could lead to a lawsuit — whether for trespass or intrusion upon seclusion — see this post. For more on law and drones, including shooting down drones, see these posts.
