NEW BRITAIN — A Connecticut man who posted widely viewed online videos of flying drones shooting bullets and flames has lost a legal fight to overturn his expulsion from college.
A Superior Court judge recently dismissed a lawsuit by Austin Haughwout , who sued Central Connecticut State University officials for wrongful expulsion. His lawyer said Monday that an appeal is planned.
Central Connecticut officials said the 20-year-old Clinton resident was expelled last year for threatening to shoot people at the school. Haughwout denied the allegation and said the drones were the real reason he got kicked out.
