Everyone in Texas loves their own private time.

After a long day of work, there's nothing like coming home and relaxing. Whether it be reading a book, or watching a favorite show, there's many ways to unwind. But, there's always something that could break us out of our relaxing moment.

So, to say the least, we all hope that nothing stops us from cooling down. But as times change, one technological advancement has annoyed many.

Some of us have seen drones flying around recently, and sometimes they end up outside our house without permission. But can police fly a drone around your home and it be perfectly legal? The answer might surprise you.
