AK-47 armed naked man fires at SWAT robot

The robot sustained non-life threatening wounds

MELBOURNE, Fla. - When Melbourne deputies tried to corner a man with a SWAT robot, they discovered he was armed and naked.

The man was inside a home threatening officers, according to wesh.com.

Instead of risking lives, a SWAT robot was sent inside the residence.

Video from the $65,000 robot details its search of the home's interior. At one point, the homeowner steps into the picture and opens fire with an AK-47, according to the report.

The robot sustained non-life threatening wounds and was sent away to have the bullet holes plugged.

No humans were hurt.
