Talk about a bad break up.   A story out of Concord has to be top of the list.

A pilot has been arrested after Concord police say he used his private plane to harass an ex-girlfriend.

Police say Tom Huey may have been buzzing his ex-girlfriend's house for the past year. 

Recently someone began dropping flyers on lawns in the area of Lincoln Drive.   They contained derogatory statements about a woman in the neighborhood, including a racial slur directed at African-Americans.

Police connected the dots and pinned the woman's ex-boyfriend as a suspect and say they think he used his plane as a way to distribute the flyers.

Huey was taken into custody at Buchanan Field Airport Wednesay night after people called police again to complain about a low flying plane in their neighborhood.   They were waiting for him after he landed his 1957 Beech airplane.   He faces charges of felony stalking and violating a restraining order.

Here's a video courtesy of Claycord.com:

People in the neighborhood also wonder if the pilot and his plane are behind a rock that broke through a car windshield last year.

Huey is being held in Contra Costa County jail in lieu of $155,000  bail.
