On February 8, Union County deputies responded to County Road 96 in New Albany about a man there shooting at helicopters. 

When the deputy asked Curbow if he had been shooting at helicopters, Curbow replied, "if y'all do not want me shooting, you should make the helicopters quit dropping drugs at my house." 

He also told the deputy that one helicopter tried to fly into the window of his pick-up truck. 

neighbor said every time a helicopter flies over their properties, Curbow shoots at it at least three times. 

Curbow later stated the helicopters had killed some of his livestock by shooting them with lasers which had also temporarily blinded him. 

He also said the Army used a satellite hookup to send signals to choke him while he was eating and dropped meth on his property.  

He also stated he heard "army guys" talking behind his property about harming him.
