In Philadelphia, the police have questioned a man who was flying a drone inside Citizens Bank Park during a Phillies baseball game. According to authorities, the drone was seen flying near the third-base gate on Sunday but then landed in a parking lot outside. The drone pilot cooperated and was released without being charged. His drone, which had a camera attached, was originally confiscated but will be returned. The pilot lucked out considering the FAA rules restrict the flying of drones below 3,000 feet and within three miles of large baseball or football stadiums.
Team security director Sal DeAngelis tells The Philadelphia Inquirer the drone did not fly over the field or disrupt the game against the Colorado Rockies.
