MIDDLETOWN, CT – A Connecticut teen who made headlines for building a gun-toting drone was arrested for assaulting two police officers.

Austin Haughwout’s drone video had nothing to do with his arrest. Police say the 18-year-old was verbally confrontational during a traffic stop, which was caught on video.

Police say it turned physical and Haughwout hit and kicked them repeatedly. The officers received minor injuries but are okay.
