" he told the officers he drove to the scene to fly over the helicopter and get video footage of their pursuit."

I wish these people would stick to hanging off radio towers & cranes to take selfies.

We had a guy here asking for hints about how to put a gun on the drone.

If those incindents occur more frequently, we'll soon face severe restrictions for operating drones by law.

Some idiots ruin it and all have to face the consequences.

Well that's all hearsay. No video evidence. Could be just a propaganda scare announcement being used to educate the masses or scare them into obedience. Was just a video of loads of different drones flying as if to say yes all of these are under our laws...

But yes fly safe and respect others air space.

The more laws the more crime. We need a stronger lobby. A man can kill a school of kids with a firearm and no new regulations. Someone flies a drone and there are all kinds of problems. Dji needs to start buying politicians

The FAA is actually working with news agencies to help avoid things like this.  In my neck of the woods we are teaming up with our local FAA to learn how to work with emergency responders and gather news safely.  This is unfortunate.
