The arrows were landing close to a film crew in the area.
You read that right: someone in the 6ix was using a bow and arrow to shoot at a drone Thursday morning.
Toronto Police tweeted about an "unknown trouble" in the Dundas Street East and Greenwood Avenue area on September 30. "You had somebody who, I think, took offence to a drone being flown in or near their area," Constable David Hopkinson told Narcity over the phone.

"So, they start to try and shoot the drone down with a bow and arrow," he continued. "The problem was those arrows were landing in an area that was close to a film crew that was in the area, [which was] providing quite a significant hazard."
Police confronted two people and were able to negotiate their way into their home where they were arrested.
"The charges are [...] assault with a weapon, weapons dangerous to the public peace, and being a common nuisance," Constable Hopkinson said.
No injuries have been reported.
