Stalking Protective Orders and “video-taping”

Frequent “video-taping” of a neighbor with a cell phone may not be a crime and not be grounds to secure a protective order under the general Civil Stalking statute. In order to qualify or rise to the level of a crime proof is required to show that the conduct was performed with knowledge that it would cause the victim "to fear for such person's physical safety". However, the opinion from the March 13, 2017 Connecticut Reporter mentions only cell-phones and does not deal with and consider whether "video-taping" from a drone constitutes grounds for a Stalking Protective Order.
