It was really just a matter of time until a story like this hit. In the UK, a man has been accused of recklessly operating his drone.
A man has been accused of dangerously flying a drone in south Warwickshire.
The 37-year-old man has been accused of five offences, including allowing the drone to land or take off within 30m (98ft) of a person, police said.
He is also accused of recklessly or negligently causing or permitting the drone to endanger a person or property.
The Stratford-upon-Avon man has been summonsed before Leamington Spa magistrates on 5 July over flights made last December and in January.
While this story really comes as no surprise, I was expecting some sort of DUI/DWI element, which didn’t occur.
At Drone Universities, we believe education, not regulation, is the solution. When I see or read about someone “recklessly or negligently” operating a drone, the first question that jumps to mind is “Who trained him (or her)?” So before you operate your drone, get the training that you need, from the very best … Drone Universities.
