Man charged after drone crashes into heli

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A man has been arrested by FBI special agents in Los Angeles on charges of recklessly flying a drone that crashed into a police helicopter.

The case against Andrew Rene Hernandez is believed to be the first criminal prosecution ever in the US alleging the unsafe operation of an unmanned aircraft.

The pilot of the Los Angeles police department helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing after being struck by the drone over Hollywood in September.

If convicted, he faces a statutory maximum sentence of one year in federal prison.

and then

"His arrest came during what is National Drone Safety Awareness Week sponsored by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)."

Imagine that...

maybe it was a police Heli that crashed into his drone.   maybe the guy lost control over the drone due to interference from police heli,  who knows they may had an illegal stingray on board that could mess up remote signal.  there is absolutely 0 evidence, as far as article mentioned it was an intentional act. ,
