A Tulsa pilot had his pilot certificate revoked for buzzing homes in Flagstaff, AZ. He kept the Robinson R44 helicopter, and kept flying it, changing the tail number of his helicopter (with electrical tape). He's now forfeited his heli, and earned a two year ban on flying or owning an aircraft. His best quote, though, was "I've been a bad boy in the eyes of the FAA".
Amazing this didn't happen in Florida.
Further tying this to Jalopnik, although I doubt he'd appreciate the connection, Richard Hammond owns and flies an R44 as well.
