Man Admits To Crashing Drone Over White House

Man claims he was using drone for recreation


A Washington DC man has come forward to the Secret Service and has admitted that he flew a drone over the White House that eventually ended up crashing on White House grounds.

The President was not in the White House and is away on a diplomatic trip in India.

The Secret Service said that at 3:08 a.m. Monday one of its officers “heard and observed a ‘quad copter’ device, approximately two feet in diameter, flying at a very low altitude and ultimately crashing on the southeast side of the complex.”

It is illegal to fly any craft above or around the White House. New rules for commercial drones are expected to be released by the Federal Aviation Administration in September.

The incident follows the latest in a slew of security breaches at the White House which included a man who jumping the White House fence and made it inside the White House last September.
