Kfir Baranes wanted to surprise a friend with a visit on her birthday. He dropped by her backyard in Coral Springs in a helicopter. Police were called. Baranes faces a fine for a code violation.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Kfir Baranes just wanted to surprise a friend with a visit on her 45th birthday. He dropped by her backyard in Coral Springs, Fla., in a helicopter. He thought he'd take her kids for a ride in the chopper. The neighbors were horrified. They called the police, and the fire department shut down the street. Baranes is now fighting a fine saying he was on private property. He had to leave, but he later came back to the party in a car.
